A Global Lasallian Campaign in Response to the COVID-19 Emergency

The Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and the Fondazione De La Salle Solidarietà Internazionale ONLUS, are pleased to announce the initiative "#LaSalleCovid19" a campaign for awareness-raising and fund-collecting being mounted in 80 countries to promote solidarity and closeness and to help the most vulnerable and to respond to the COVID-19 emergency.

The health emergency arising from COVID-19 has led almost all governments in places where Lasallian establishments are operating to close the schools for the time being. Nevertheless, most of the educational centres continue to offer education via virtual classes and digital platforms.In order to ensure that students, teachers, and volunteers can continue to feel that they are part of the global Lasallian family, the campaign #LaSalleCovid19 has been launched.

One hashtag to find each other on social media and share with colleagues and classmates from other countries messages of hope, photos and videos.

One hashtag to share in the many initiatives being mounted by Lasallians at local level to help their communities through, for example, the distribution of food and hygienic products, the making of masks and the creation of secure refuges.

One hashtag to help the most vulnerable. Although a global pandemic, the virus is not yet fully circulated to all locations.  When it arrives, it is likely to show its greatest impact on developing nations and island states.
