The #TOGETHERBAND campaign has always stood for unity in the face of the unprecedented issues and this pandemic is no different. Our collective voice and action is more important now than ever.
#TOGETHERBAND has launched the #TOGETHER FUND in partnership with BOTTLETOP Foundation, the UN FOUNDATION, and TO.org. It will raise vital funding for the United Nations' COVID-19 Solidarity Fund for WHO and Médecins sans Frontières as well as groundbreaking programmes delivering the Global Goals and a healthy planet who need our support now more than ever.
The money we raise will help patients access the care they need, support tracking and prevention measures and ensure that health workers across the globe have access to accurate information.
The #TOGETHER FUND is administered by the BOTTLETOP FOUNDATION who will distribute funds in the following way:
50% of the funds we raise will go to COVID-19 Response Funds; split equally between UN COVID-19 Solidarity Fund for WHO and Médecins sans Frontières.
50% of the funds will go to the life-changing programmes addressing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals that are critical to our planet’s future.
About the Funds
The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund has been set up by the United Nations Foundation and the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation to support the World Health Organisation and its partners at this unprecedented time. Its aim is to prevent, detect and manage the novel coronavirus.
Médecins sans Frontières, also known as Doctors Without Borders, is an international humanitarian medical organisation that saves lives during epidemics, as well as in conflict zones and natural disasters. They go where they are most needed, caring for the most vulnerable in our society.
The 23 programmes that benefit from #TOGETHERBAND funds deliver life-changing support for each of the UN Global Goals; from Climate Action and No Poverty to Good Health and Well-being. Details of the different programmes can be found here.
