The Crisis

It’s been over a year since we have been barely living through the COVID times. Now a year later, while some of us can see light at the end of the tunnel, countries like India and Brazil are bearing the brunt of widespread devastation. The situation is such that people are having to abandon the bodies of their deceased kith and kin due to the fear of contracting the infection. It has exposed gaps in various sectors like healthcare, supplies, logistics, and our general preparedness at scale.

The Response

During COVID’s first wave, UMO united the global design community to address some of the pressing social issues through various programs. The “Life in the Lockdown Challenge” saw huge participation in raising awareness and in identifying and proposing solutions for urgent social issues.

Now a year later, the situation we are in demands much more. UMO unites again to mobilize the global design community for lending support and help. Can we join hands together as a community to make a difference?
