Gifting in the COVID Era

Jumia has donated face masks to the health ministries of Nigeria, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Uganda and Morocco. 54gene, a genomics research startup, has launched a $500,000 fund to boost local testing capacity for coronavirus in West Africa. Ventures Platform, a local VC firm, has also partnered with the Lagos science and research agency to find and fund innovative tech-based solutions that tackle coronavirus-related issues.

    I do like the way you have presented this specific concern and it does give me personally a lot of fodder for thought. Nevertheless, because of what I have experienced, I basically hope as the reviews stack on that individuals continue to be on issue and don’t get started on a tirade associated with some other news du jour. All the same, thank you for this exceptional point and while I do not necessarily concur with the idea in totality, I respect the point of view.
