About the Book

At the beginning of last year, the world began facing a public health crisis, the scope of which not seen in a century. As COVID-19 rapidly reached every corner of the globe, chaos and fear spread with it. Yet, as the crisis continued, billions of people also decided to respond with love, care, and compassion.
