Greta Thunberg doou os 100 mil dólares que ganhou de um prêmio do Unicef (Fundo das Nações Unidas para a Infância) para a luta mundial contra a pandemia do coronavírus. Uma ONG dinamarquesa, a Human Act, de combate à pobreza, vai igualar a sua doação.

Greta, de apenas 17 anos, é uma famosa ativista climática que ganhou repercussão mundial nos últimos anos. Ela explicou o seu gesto solidário nesse momento de pandemia: “Assim como a crise climática, a pandemia de coronavírus é uma crise dos direitos das crianças […] Ela afetará todas as crianças, agora e a longo prazo, mas os grupos vulneráveis serão os mais atingidos”.

“Mais de 1,5 bilhão de crianças estão sendo afetadas hoje pelo fechamento das escolas. Isso as afeta diretamente na possibilidade de aprender, de se alimentar e ter acesso a água e a condições sanitárias”, continuou em post do seu Instagram.

O coronavírus já infectou mais de 3 milhões de pessoas em todo o mundo e registrou mais de 200 mil mortes. No Brasil já são quase 80 mil casos, com 5.513 mortes até o momento.

Very honoured to receive Human Act Award. The prize money – 100 000 USD – will be donated to @unicef . @HumanActDk will match this donation with an additional USD 100,000 for the total sum of USD 200,000. So today we are launching a joint global funding campaign – Let’s Move Humanity for Children in the Fight Against Coronavirus – to support UNICEF´s efforts to protect and save children’s lives during the corona crisis. The poorest and the most vulnerable people are always the hardest hit by a crisis. Just like the climate crisis, the consequences of the corona pandemic will be most damaging for children in poor countries, in the poorest neighborhoods and for those already in disadvantaged and vulnerable situations. More than 1,5 billion children are today affected by school closures. This has a direct effect on millions of children and young people’s possibilities to learn, to a lunch meal and get access to water and sanitation. More than 300 million school children rrely on schools as a source of daily nutrition. Millions of children do not have access to distance learning. The digital divide is an example of global inequalities that affects the most vulnerable children. Even if children so far generally have been spared the most severe symptoms of the Covid-19 virus, children’s lives and heath are already at risk. This is mainly due to lack of access to healthcare services – both for children and pregnant women – because of vaccination campaigns being suspended as well as lack of nutrition. With the global health care services becoming overwhelmed there will be many additional child deaths in 2020. This is a global crisis and for millions of children the impact will be life long. We need to act now – for the sake of every child. The time is now, and we need your help to protect children. Donate today at https://uni.cf/fight-coronavirus (link in bio). Thank you!
