Join in today to One World: #TogetherAtHome, a call on governments, corporations, and philanthropists to step up their investments in global health.
There will be a special live broadcast on Saturday, April 18, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on ABC, NBC, ViacomCBS Networks, and iHeartMedia, as well as Bell Media networks and platforms in Canada. Why? Because Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO) have announced the One World: Together At Home global special in support of the fight against COVID-19.
The virtual broadcast will show unity among all people who are affected by COVID-19, as well as celebrating and supporting the brave frontline health care workers around the world who are doing incredible, life-saving work, according to the site. Aside from supporting the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, the broadcast will also highlight stories from the world’s health care heroes, as well as messages of gratitude and appreciation from those who they’ve treated.
Lady Gaga confirmed that $35 million has already been raised over the past seven days to support the WHO’s efforts. Lady Gaga was joined in making the announcement by Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen.
“It is so important to think globally and support the World Health Organization to curb the pandemic and prevent future outbreaks,” she said. “We want to highlight the gravity of this historical, unprecedented, and cultural movement.”
