H&M has donated 500 thousand U.S. dollars to the COVID-19
Solidarity Response Fund. Initiated to raise money to support
prevention, detection and response to the coronavirus pandemic, the
Fund has already received su-pport from Facebook and Google.
The H&M Foundation’s donation will help the World Health
Organization’s efforts to track and understand the spread of the
virus, as well as help patients get the care they need.
“The growing COVID-19 pandemic affects us all and the World Health
Organization is doing an extremely important job of leading and
managing this global effort,” Karl-Johan Persson, board member of H&M
Foundation, said in a statement.
“We hope that more organisations and individuals want to join and
help, as donations to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund are
essential to meet funding needs in this fast-moving situation.”
