Student creates fundraising campaign for underprivileged communities in South Africa

For developing countries the measures to stop the corona virus spread are not as simple. Cleaning your hands, working from home, staying separately in quarantine are not possible in over crowded regions, with no access to running water and no stable income. 

For that reason, one of our IMBRSea students from South Africa Lara Paige decided to start an online fundraising campaign for underprivileged communities in her home country. Her project is called #SanitizeSouthAfrica and she is hoping to obtain enough money to secure a minimum of 5000 liters of hand sanitizers. 

That's a great initiative. We are very proud of our students that are always ready to give a helping hand to others!
