On April 30th, we came together for an incredible concert of togetherness. We shared an uplifting night of love, friendship, and unity. We will continue to host these fantastic concerts with a world-class group of musicians who have volunteered their time and talents to bring us together. "We Are All In This Together" is the mantra of the evening, and we hope you found comfort in knowing that no matter what, there is so much good to sing about! As a community, we have chosen light in these uncertain times. Thank you for joining our community. We will not only survive but triumph. Should you feel inspired, please donate to UNICEF as we fight to combat the global pandemic. I am pleased to highlight some of the significant advancements UNICEF has made in the fight against COVID-19.
- To date, UNICEF and partners have reached over half a billion people with COVID-19 prevention messaging around handwashing, cough, and sneeze hygiene.
- UNICEF has provided around $4 million in hospital equipment, which includes defibrillators, electrocardiogram monitors, portable ultrasound systems, infusion pumps, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including N95 masks, gloves, protective goggles, face shields, and protective boots. The PPE has been provided to 40 million health care and front-line workers.
- Over 154 million children in eight countries are being supported with distance/home-based learning.
The fact of the matter is that these are the moments that define why many have supported UNICEF in the past. We have stood tall for 70 years in the face of some of the most challenging times in our world's history, and we will continue to do so. If there were ever a time that we need your support, it is now. This lifesaving work is only made possible by dedicated partners like you.
