The entire world is facing an unprecedented threat as the COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly covered the globe, spread sufferings, disrupted billions of lives and endangered the global economy.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is leading and coordinating the global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect and respond to the pandemic.
Under these challenging circumstances, during the year when the 75th anniversary of the United Nations is being marked, there is a message of solidarity that 26 former and current ambassadors to the UN want to send to the world, launching a music video with a cover of Michael Jackson’s song “Heal the World”.
This video is a tribute to all those who contribute to healing the world – doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, according to the United Nations.
It also wants to encourage donations to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for World Health Organization, which can be made at www.COVID19ResponseFund.org
The music project is an initiative of Simona-Mirela Miculescu, founding member of UNRocks, the first ever music group composed of ambassadors to the UN.
