I am proud to be part of such a critical movement that aims to heal the world and flatten the curve. It is always a privilege and honor to work alongside Global Citizen, especially now during this global situation where we can all truly make a difference. As the world’s largest martial arts organization, ONE Championship will help to ease the burden of life indoors. We hope you all enjoy the time with our ONE Championship superstars.”
One World: Together At Home is not a telethon – it is a historic, first-of-its-kind global broadcast event to celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers, and to support the World Health Organization in the global fight to end COVID-19. The broadcast will feature stories from frontline healthcare workers on the COVID response, commitments from philanthropists, governments and corporations to support and equip frontline healthcare workers around the world, with masks, gowns and other vital equipment, and to local charities that provide food, shelter, and healthcare to those that need it most.
