Together We Can End the Pandemic
“It was a year of deep learning. We learned that in our round earth, each and every one of us is the centre and no country is more central or higher than another.

We are also aware of the vulnerability we have as human beings and much more as individuals.” -Ricardo Esquivia, director of MCC partner Sembrandopaz in Colombia.
