Today I'm happy to announce that we have reached a major milestone: most of the static content, user logins, blogs and many CiviCRM forms are now being served from Drupal8.

We live in challenging times, and we should now help each other more then ever - especially when on lockdown.   We created a CiviCRM extension to coordinate help for the vulnerable and most affected members of your neighbourhood, community, town or county.
