We can make change
If we give generously in large numbers, we can inspire others to do the same.
By doing so we raise public awareness about the ongoing dearth of vaccines in many countries.
This way, we keep pressure on our national governments to donate surplus vaccines to low-income countries and to invest in improving their health infrastructures for the next global health emergency.
