Enhancing Global Unity in Times of Adversity
In times like this, with the ongoing pandemic, the global community struggles and fights heavily. The pandemic has been leaving devastating effects in many sectors and created miseries and sufferings among mankind. Alongside the virus, there are other serious matters at hand to be combatted. Furthermore, they’re just as life-threatening; child malnutrition, poverty, human trafficking, illegal occupation/settlements, a serious violation of human rights, and the list goes on. The global economy underwent a serious collapse due to the pandemic, leaving half of the world going into economic recession. Families are being pushed into poverty, leaving them hungry and deprived. Refugees have been subject to many hardships and the pandemic is making it even worse. Illegal occupation and settlement can still be seen; drifting native and indigenous people of their land. Poorer and smaller nations are still battling against the virus as they also have to strive forward for their people. In times like this, global unity is needed. We don’t have to fight alone, we don’t need to face this all alone. Solidarity and stability among people help mankind find the way. The pandemic may seem to be everlasting with the current pace, but it’s not possible to end it once and for all. Believe in a better world for our people. together we can create peace and make the world a better place.
