After the One World: Together at Home virtual COVID-19 benefit concert in April, advocacy group Global Citizen is organising another one, Global Goal: Unite for Our Future — The Future, which Mediacorp will broadcast live this Sunday (June 28) at 2am on Channel 5 and meWATCH.
Organised by Global Citizen and the European Commission, this two-hour special — with Dwayne Johnson as host — is part of a campaign to raise awareness and funds for the efforts towards developing a globally available vaccine for the COVID-19 virus. It will also highlight the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has on marginalised communities.
“The event aims to lift up the global community that is tackling equitable access to healthcare, and other enormous injustices facing our world,” said Johnson in a statement. “This critical moment in history requires all of us — so let’s join together to chart a better future, for everyone.”
