An online conference titled Coronavirus Charity in Russia: How the Crisis Has Brought Everyone Together will be held at 12:00 p.m. on 15 May. The conference is being organized by the Innosocium Foundation, the social platform of the Roscongress Foundation.
More than 3.7 million cases of coronavirus have been recorded around the world since the outbreak of the pandemic, with over 200,000 cases in Russia. COVID-19 has taken a major toll on the economy and various industries, but has had the biggest impact on people, many of whom have been left without work or any social interaction and need medicines and food.
However, the crisis has also shown the amazing ability of people, NPOs, charitable foundations, and business to come together. The number of volunteers has increased, NPOs are finding new opportunities to help people in need, and companies are redirecting their resources to support people who are unable to take care of themselves.
During the conference, representatives of Russian charitable foundations, associations, and companies will discuss special aspects of charity in Russia during the COVID-19 pandemic, current social problems, and how each of us can help in solving them.
