As a UN Messenger of Peace combating Hunger and Poverty, I am joining other @UnitedNations Messengers of Peace in supporting the appeal for a global ceasefire made by Secretary-General @antonioguterres.
It is time to focus, together, on the true fight of our lives - #COVID19.
We are facing a global crisis unlike any we have seen before. Meanwhile, armed conflict rages on around the world and the most vulnerable pay the highest price. We call on all of humanity to take inspiration from the acts of solidarity, cooperation and kindness shown by governments, communities and individuals everywhere.
History will remember an act of collective courage.
