Sony donating $100 million to support COVID-19 relief

Sony has announced that it will be committing $100 million in support of COVID-19 relief around the world. The fund is called the "Sony Global Relief Fund for COVID-19," with the intention of providing funding to those in need during this crisis. Support will be divided into three main areas:

*Assistance to individuals engaged in the medical field like doctors, nurses, and first responders fighting the virus on the front-lines.

*Implementing new forms of education for children and educators who can no longer attend school and must work from home.

*Support for members of the creative community within the entertainment and gaming industries impacted.

Sony has pledged 10% of the fund will be sent to medical support, in assistance with the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO powered by the UN Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). These foundations are devoted to assisting medical professionals and workers currently assisting in the effort to prevent the further spread of the virus and contribute to the treatment of the public.

In terms of assisting teachers and children, Sony is looking to explore ways in which the company can leverage the technologies at its disposal in support of educational activities, and to help coordinate with educators to implement these changes in a seamless way. Read More...
