During these difficult times, we hope to support you in every way possible. The coronavirus knows no borders and does not discriminate, meaning we are all in this together. Now more than ever we need global solidarity. By working together, sharing resources and offering support, we can overcome the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Prevention is key.
We are learning from countries (China, Italy, Spain etc.) on how to deal with the Coronavirus, and believe that if we share our resources and learnings with you, then by working together, we can slow and #StopTheSpread of the virus.
