How Companies are Helping During the Coronavirus Pandemic

It’s been a couple of weeks since coronavirus changed our lifestyles in order to prevent more people from getting infected, especially those with underlying medical conditions and adults over 60 years old. It is an overwhelming situation since no matter where we look, there is fake news everywhere or scary opinions about how the future will be like.


Today we want to give you some inspiring news. Even in a crisis, there are still helpers and people willing to make the world a better place. That’s why we’ll show you a list of companies who are helping people affected by Covid-19.
