In this edition of W-Connect, the newsletter of WSM to highlight the activities of the Asia Network on the Right to Social Protection (ANRSP), we look at the Corona crisis and what the WSM partners are doing in various countries in Asia. Completely on their own initiative, none of partners could simply idly stand by, even without any formal projects or guaranteed funding. Each with their own approach mobilised members and resources, volunteered, organized and shared among their specific groups. This includes health workers on the front lines in the Philippines, migrant and garment workers in Indonesia, informal and domestic workers in India and many more. To support them in these endeavors in these unprecedented times, WSM partners can re-allocate up to 20% of the 2020 budget to Corona related activities.
The question arises as to what support we offer, as high income countries, so that low and middle income countries can cope with this crisis and future ones.
WSM supports the European Climate & Jobs Pact and its three solutions towards a brighter, greener future.
