Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to commit to the causes they care about. The Sussexes have agreed to chair a charity concert that will take place this May, organized by Global Citizen.
On May 8, Global Citizen will organize a big charity concert called “Vax Life”. An event that will aim to raise funds to make the vaccination against Covid-19 accessible to all and thus lead to a vaccine equity including in the most disadvantaged countries. Several stars such as Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, J.Balvin or H.E.R will give their voices. The organizers will also be able to count on the support of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry who were announced this Tuesday, April 27 as “presidents of this campaign”.
The Sussexes reacted to the good news in a statement issued afterwards: “Over the past year, our world has known pain, loss and struggle – together. Now we must recover and heal – together. We cannot leave anyone behind,” it reads. Archie’s parents added: “We will all benefit, we will all be safer, when everyone, everywhere has equal access to the vaccine. We must pursue equitable distribution of vaccines and, in doing so, restore faith in our common humanity. This mission could not be more critical or more important.”
A strong message as U.S. President Joe Biden announced this Monday, April 26, that 60 million U.S. doses of AstraZeneca vaccine will be sent to India as part of a global campaign to help fight the coronavirus epidemic. India is currently facing a particularly critical and deadly second wave of the virus. One million new cases have been reported in the country in just three days.
Emmanuel Macron questioned by Selena Gomez
This campaign is also talked about in France. This Saturday, April 24, the American singer Selena Gomez has not hesitated to directly challenge Emmanuel Macron on this subject, on Twitter: “Join me and send a message to Emmanuel Macron’s France and the other G7 leaders to ask them to promise dollars or doses to help everyone across the planet to fight against the pandemic of Covid-19” wrote the one who will host the famous concert of Global Citizen. She quickly received a response from Brigitte Macron’s husband who told her that France had already sent doses of vaccine to Africa: “Dear Selena Gomez, thank you for bringing this crucial message to all leaders. France has already started sending the first doses of vaccine to Africa through #Covax, and this is just the beginning. Thank you for spreading the word!” said the head of state.
