Crisis reveals character – and this moment in history reveals how much spirit and resilience each of us carry.
COVID-19 also reveals how deeply people and institutions – public and private, local and international – depend on one another. We can’t go it alone. Our food supply depends on countless farmers, truck drivers, and grocery store workers. Healthcare professionals can’t save lives safely without supply chains that effectively distribute Personal Protective Equipment, ventilators, disinfectant, hospital beds, and more.
We’ve got to keep these resources flowing.
Since the beginning of this outbreak we’ve engaged with local and international organizations around the world to aid frontline workers and help protect vulnerable populations.
