Michelle Obama Helped Raise $55 Million for WHO Days After Trump Cut Funding
Obama, along with former First Lady Laura Bush, joined in to help raise funds
Former First Lady Michelle Obama is taking full political advantage of the coronavirus pandemic by helping raise $55 Million for the communist China-linked World Health Organization (WHO), days after Trump cut its funding.
Despite WHO being accused of covering up for China on the severity of the coronavirus and putting the entire world at risk, Michelle Obama decided the UN global body might need some help.
Obama, along with former first lady, Laura Bush, joined in to help raise funds for Global Citizen, the nongovernmental organization that launched the “Together at Home” virtual concert last week.
A news release from Global Citizen read:
“Following One World: Together At Home, a historic global broadcasting event, Global Citizen together with Lady Gaga, announced $127 million in commitments to date in support of health care workers in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic."
An eye-watering $55.1 million was set to go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, with $72.8 million allocated for “local and regional responders.”
“World leaders, corporate partners, and philanthropists announced their support for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, powered by the UN Foundation, during the One World: Together At Home global broadcast event. Donations to the fund will also support the vaccine development alliance Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and UNICEF,” the release continued.
“The Together At Home effort will also aid over 100 additional local and regional charities that will also receive funds, including Education, Cannot Wait, Direct Care, Feeding America, and United Way, among others.
"Changemakers, investors, and foundation leaders came together to contribute quickly to related efforts, like strengthening health care systems and investing in vaccine development.”

“We’ve had the profound privilege of getting to know you and your families. Your hopes, your struggles, and your triumphs,” Obama said.
“The coming days will not be easy, but this global family of ours is strong.
"We will continue to be here for one another, and we will get through this crisis together. Thank you.”
“The spirit and courage of the American people is most evident in times of crisis, and during this period of physical separation, we’ve never been closer,” Bush added.
"Not just in our great country, but tonight we stand with the people of the world."

Meanwhile, three men from New York are suing the World Health Organization (WHO) for 'incalculable' damages over its response to the coronavirus pandemic.
They accuse the WHO of not reacting quickly enough to declare a pandemic, and also covering up for Communist China.
Additionally, US lawyers also launched an unprecedented lawsuit against China.
The landmark legal action, to sue the Chinese government for trillions of dollars over the coronavirus pandemic, accuses leaders of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) of negligence and an attempted cover-up of COVID-19.
The class-action lawsuit was filed in Florida and involved thousands of claimants from 40 countries, including Britain and the U.S.
As Neon Nettle reported earlier this month, an email released by Taiwan revealed the WHO also received a warning in December about the coronavirus outbreak in China but chose to ignore it,
The Taiwanese government says WHO ignored its inquiries about COVID-19, and they were denied adequate information to fight the coronavirus.
Michelle Obama's decision to help raise money for the global health body, which covered for the communist Chineses and put the entire world at risk, maybe a statement in opposing Trump.
Still, it also shows what side of the fence she is on.
