As the world works to contain the Corona Virus artists continue to do their part by teaming up with the World Health Organization (WHO).
Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Becky G, Usher and Rita Ora are using their fame for a good cause by advocating for Global Citizen’s urgent campaign to support WHO’s Solidarity Response Fund current COVID-19 pandemic. The organization claims they need $675 million to fund coronavirus preparedness and response efforts until April, which calls for a special type of mobilization.
Following 12,000 actions, the team of musicians publicly posted the following suggestions: “1. Call on G20 leaders to urgently fund the WHO’s COVID-19 response. 2. Ask corporations + individuals to donate to the WHO Solidarity Fund. 3. Wash your Hands + practice social distancing.” What they’re campaigning for is not just money, but to stand in solidarity with one another to stop the spread of COVID-19 to others.
In last Friday’s newsletter, Global Citizen co-founder Hugh Evans ignited readers with this statement: “With coronavirus cases now present in more than 100 countries and the spread declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), it’s never been clearer: we are all Global Citizens, and must fight for a world with good health for all.”
