Support Red Cross against Covid-19

OUR MISSION THIS YEAR

When the pandemic knocks at your door and hits very hard your family, relatives, and friends, that it’s the moment when you start to realize how life is fragile and how lucky we are that we can still play a huge role and we have the responsibility to turn this world into a better place to live. We believe that in front of this situation, no one can be left alone. 

We teamed up with The International Committee of the Red Cross, an organization helping communities affected by armed conflict and violence in over 90 countries.The ICRC is working to address the most pressing needs arising from the COVID-19 outbreak as the disease represents a dramatic threat to the lives of people living in conflict zones, where health systems have been ravaged by war.

We encourage you then to donate to ICRC for its campaign against COVID-19. Feel proud of your help, and feel proud to give relief to the most vulnerable because your contribution can save lives.

Thanks for your help.
The SOA team.
