Corona Projects

The Europe-wide influenza pandemic, also know as the Spanish flu, caused the death of 40 to 50 million people according to World Health Organisation estimates, mainly young and healthy adults. The pandemic reached Switzerland in 1918 and led the Carnegie Hero Foundation to honour and offer financial aid to people who volunteered to help the sick. Hundreds received a specially-created certificate of honour «in acknowledgement of your dedicated care of the sick during 1918 influenza epidemic».

Today the foundation was witnessing the CoVid-19 pandemic and was taking this as an occasion to act in the same way: This time not to support individuals, but new Swiss Corona Aid Organisations.
