Millions of people are still becoming infected, hundreds of thousands are still dying, and millions are still struggling financially and to find their next meal. Embrace Relief has been a staunch supporter of those suffering from the pandemic from the very beginning.
Governments, pharmaceutical companies, and scientists worldwide are working tirelessly to generate and distribute vaccines as quickly as possible. In place of this, businesses, schools, and institutions continue to increase patron capacity or attempt to reopen, but the virus continues to mutate into new variants and strains, causing further waves to surge throughout the planet, forcing them to stay closed. Additionally, millions of people continue to contract COVID-19 causing the death of hundreds of thousands, and millions struggle financially and to find their next meal. Indeed, the world is far from being in the clear from this horrific virus, and support for all those affected is still very much needed.

From the very beginning, Embrace Relief has been a pillar of support and advocacy for those suffering from the ripple effects of the pandemic.

We also assisted over 80 families with monetary support and distributed over 18,000 food packages to families facing hunger. In 2021, we continue to rigorously support people by distributing over 400,000 packs of antibacterial wet wipes to American hospitals, police departments, universities, shelters, and other institutions.
#StrongerTogether 2020: What Happened?
Another significant contribution we made to the hidden victims caught in the wake of the coronavirus was the highly successful online fundraiser #StrongerTogether we hosted in May 2020. The fundraiser broadcast was live for almost 4 hours, was joined by over 5,000 people from all around the world, and featured 12 inspirational speakers, including Boston Celtics basketball player Enes Kanter, Chief Investigative Correspondent for Inside Edition Lisa Guerrero, Catholic Priest and Professor at Georgetown Thomas Michel, among others. They talked about a wide array of essential topics such as staying positive during uncertain times, how the pandemic has affected the media industry, maintaining the decrease in global warming when the quarantine is over, and more.
