WHO & Global Citizen Hope to Raise Awareness & Funds to Fight the COVID-19 Pandemic
The World Health Organization (WHO) and Global Citizen teamed up with the artists listed above to raise funds and address the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the globe. Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen, hopes the concert will help remind the world that we’re all in this together, and that we are eternally grateful to the healthcare, grocery and service industry workers who are working overtime to serve the community during the pandemic.
“We are grateful to the private sector who have listened to the public’s call for action and come together to support the global response to COVID19. This pandemic is too large for governments to tackle alone,”Evans said in a statement. “We are also incredibly grateful for the continued support from the artist community to make ‘One World: Together at Home’ a moment of global unity. Our hope for the special is that everyone will come away believing that we, as a shared humanity, can emerge from this moment forever grateful for the work of doctors, nurses, teachers, grocery store workers and all those who are the backbone of our communities.”
