One World: Together At Home
Written by Vitalize Radio on 18th April 2020
One World: Together At Home is a campaign rallying funds for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
The WHO’s mission for COVID-19 is to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic. This Fund, powered by the UN Foundation, goes directly to WHO’s rapid response to COVID-19. So far, the WHO has shipped over 2 million items of PPE to 133 countries and 1.5 million testing kits to 126 countries.
The UN and the World Health Organization (WHO) asked Global Citizen to support their COVID-19 response by bringing the world together through music and inspiring everyone to take action. With an exceptional group of artists, Global Citizen is now launching One World: Together At Home.
One World: Together At Home is a historic, cross-platform global special that will celebrate and support healthcare workers and others on the frontlines, and the World Health Organization (WHO) as they lead the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The broadcast will include leading global health experts alongside exciting performances by the world’s top artists and comedians.
How does Together At Home benefit the World Health Organization?
Contributions from corporate partners will go directly to the WHO’s Solidarity Response Fund to support and equip healthcare workers around the world. WHO is best positioned to lead and coordinate the global response across all 194 nation states. As of last week, WHO has shipped 2 million pieces of critical PPE and supplies to 68 countries worldwide, ensuring the poorest countries have the resources needed to tackle COVID-19.
- This included over 700,000 surgical masks, 51,000 N95 masks, 727,000 gloves, 85,000 gowns, nearly 14,000 goggles, and over 20,000 face shields.
- The Fund has also supplied 1.5 million diagnostic kits to 120 countries, increasing their capacity — 39 of those countries were in Africa, 20 in the Eastern Mediterrenean Region and 29 in the Americas to bolster their abilities to detect and respond to COVID-19.
