However, these trying times have also brought people together, to support, to make a difference and attend to needs.
Starting today, I will be handing over my social media accounts to NGOs we have partnered with across with country and all content posted on my handles will be exclusively to help connect those affected with the resources they require. It is time to extend ourselves to humanity and take measures to overcome this crisis.
Anything and everything to save lives and win this battle TOGETHER. Stay indoor. Stay safe! Be responsible- for yourself, your family and the country." (sic)
