COVID-19
Together we care!

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak we are doing our part, because we believe healthcare concerns all. Therefore it requires the contribution of all humans as a collectivity. Since the last week we have been collecting useful solutions, stories, and information to help you navigate and orient yourselves.

Let’s stay all safe, healthy digitally distributed!
