Coronavirus has reached almost every corner of the world from its outbreak in late 2019 until today. Millions of lost lives and lost jobs all happening amid a complete change of the world as we knew it - before masks, gloves and lockdowns on a global scale. But physically distanced as we may be, our communities came closer and jointly responded to the effects of COVID-19.
This overview of the region's resilience and solidarity relates to the ongoing pandemic from a different angle. We have reached out to people who displayed how communities fight back against the consequences of the coronavirus and make genuine efforts to do good in a time of urgency. We want to share their stories.
But that is not all. Every individual act of selflessness contributed to a bigger picture. We have been gathering data on all covid-related donations in the countries of the Western Balkans throughout the pandemic. Now, we would like to present the results we have discovered.
