Liberals represented at 'Together at Home' event

On 18 April, Global Citizen – an international movement that aims at ending extreme poverty by 2030 – hosted a worldwide online event to celebrate world’s healthcare workers. The event was also a call-to-action to support the global fight against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Well-known artists, political leaders and healthcare experts attended the 8-hour long event, sharing their support for healthcare workers across the globe and highlighting the need for global solidarity.

Europe’s liberals were also represented, as Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance and Development Cooperation Alexander De Croo, of ALDE member Open VLD, was one of the attendees.

In his intervention, De Croo thanked all those working in the frontlines of the crisis and announced the support of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) to accelerate the development of a vaccine – available to everyone, including the world’s poorest countries – against the virus.

“We are all in this together. And together we will overcome. Belgium stands ready to do its part, he concluded.
