GRETA THUNBERG MAKES 100,000 EUROS DONATION TO COVID 19 CAUSE
Anil Soni, chief executive officer of the WHO Foundation, applauded the donation by the Greta Thunberg Foundation as an important signal to policymakers that there is widespread support from young people around the world for a global response to this global challenge. This is in response to Greta Thunberg, the climate and environmental activist pledge to donate 100,000 euros ($120,000) in support of covax to purchase more covid 19 vaccines as part of the global effort to ensure the equal access of covid 19 vaccines.
Ms Thonberg has this to say: “The international community must do more to address the tragedy that is vaccine inequity. We have the means at our disposal to correct the great imbalance that exists around the world today in the fight against COVID-19. Just as with the climate crisis, we must help those who are the most vulnerable first. That is why I am supporting WHO, Gavi and all involved in the COVAX initiative, which I believe offers the best path forward to ensure true vaccine equity and a way out of the pandemic.”
WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus thanked Greta Thunberg for her advocacy in support of vaccine equity and the example she has set, through the Greta Thunberg Foundation, for making this life-saving donation to COVAX.
