According to the World Bank, over 689 million people live in extreme poverty, and that number is expected to increase as the pandemic continues to spread. In addition, the COVID19 pandemic has caused widespread panic and chaos, leading to food shortages, unemployment, and increased crime rates.

You can also volunteer your time to help with disaster relief efforts. In addition, global partnerships can be helpful in easing the burden on communities affected by the global crisis. For example, businesses can partner with local organizations to provide financial assistance or access to clean water. Individuals can also help by donating money or time to literacy programs or encouraging entrepreneurship.
