Silver linings during COVID-19

In our neighbourhoods and around the world, everywhere we look, people are sharing their strength, resilience and compassion in the face of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic.

At times like this, being scared and worried can sometimes feel like the new normal. But in these challenging days there’s also so much hope and goodness to be found. We want to share with you some of our favourite stories of human connection.

If there is one COVID-19 story you share today let it be this. We are stronger and more resilient when we stand together.
