“Like the climate crisis, the Corona pandemic is a child-rights crisis. It will affect all children, now and in the long-term, but vulnerable groups will be impacted the most. I’m asking everyone to step up and join us in support of UNICEF’s vital work to save children’s lives, to protect health and continue education” says Greta Thunberg.
Greta Thunberg used the $100,000 award money with Human Act additional $100,000 to kick off a fundraising campaign for vulnerable children affected by the consequences of the corona crisis. The campaign called – Let´s Move Humanity for Children in the Fight against Coronavirus – raised just over $ 1.3 million for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
