Jeunesse donates $500,000 USD to COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO
JEUNESSE GIVES $500,000 USD DONATION TO COVID-19 RESPONSE EFFORTS
A CHANGING WORLD NEEDS PEOPLE WHO WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD
As the world faces the unprecedented health challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jeunesse aims to make a positive impact, knowing that no one can fight the pandemic alone.
Through our nonprofit Jeunesse Kids™, Jeunesse has donated $500,000 USD to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, which benefits the World Health Organization (WHO) and is administered in partnership with the United Nations Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation.
Our contribution to the WHO COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund unites us with companies across all industries and sectors, as well as individuals, as we respond to this global outbreak. The World Health Organization (WHO) is using the funds to lead and coordinate the global effort to prevent, detect and respond to the pandemic.
“COVID-19 has jolted the world awake. As this pandemic evolves, we are so grateful for all individuals, organizations and businesses who pledge their support – including Jeunesse. Their contribution will make sure health workers on the front lines can help keep communities safe.”
– Elizabeth Cousens, President & CEO of the UN Foundation
DONATIONS HELP WORLDWIDE COVID-19 REPSONSE
Donations enable WHO and its partners to help all countries respond to COVID-19, especially where the needs are greatest. The support includes:
- Tracking and understanding the spread of the virus
- Ensuring patients get the care they need, and frontline workers get essential supplies and information
- Accelerating efforts to develop life-saving vaccines, tests and treatments
- Communicating guidelines and information
As a global company, we couldn’t be prouder to offer this donation to WHO’s efforts to fight COVID-19. This contribution was only possible because of our generous Jeunesse Family who devotedly supports the mission of Jeunesse Kids to empower communities.
