PLANETE URGENCE CANCELS ALL MISSIONS- CORAVIRUS (COVID-19) ALERTNESS UNTIL APRIL 15th

 

[FRIDAY 13th MARCH 2020]

 

The 12th March, The President of the Republic of France asked French citizens to be united as “a Nation” on the fight against the Coronavirus COVID-19. He demanded to all French to take responsibility and call the population to restrict the displacements to the strict minimum.

 

Due to this exceptional situation, the NGO Planète Urgence has decided to cancel all volunteer’s missions in all the countries until 15 April 2020. These actions pretend to reduce the risk of the virus spreading from France to others countries.

 

Security it is a priority for Planete Urgence and the association follows up daily the evolution of the Coronavirus outbreak and the health authorities’ recommendations. Thus, Planète Urgence will take the appropriate actions advised by the health authorities specially the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs to make decisions in real time and ensure the security of all the volunteers and partners.

 

Furthermore, we should think about «solidarity» rather than «solitary». PU team remains fully committed with the partners on the field and continues the projects on Environment and development.
