Global Citizen has announced that the One World: Together at Home concert co-organised by WHO and Lady Gaga has raised $127 million in relief funds for Covid-19.

The six hour long digital event featured performances from celebrated
musicians from home as they self-isolated including the Rolling Stones and
Billie Eilish.

Relief funds and impact

With a considerable chunk of the donations from corporate
sponsors, the WHO’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund will get $55.1m, while $72.8m
will go to charities such as food banks and shelters. The WHO fund will also be
geared towards tests, treatment, and support for the development of a vaccine.

Apart from raising funds, the concert also gave celebrities
an opportunity to raise awareness. Beyonce drew attention towards the African
American sector of the workforce saying, “Pre-existing health conditions and
lack of access… are some of the reasons why it’s most prevalent amongst
communities of colour.”

“Today, Global Citizens proved the power of collective action. #TogetherAtHome, we raised $127.9M, providing $55.1M to [the World Health Organisation’s] COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and $72.8M to local and regional responders.” – Global Citizen.
