#39 - FIRED UP about lockdowns in poor countries
I was interviewed on the Coronacast podcast by Josh VanKooten. Here is his summary: "In this episode, I speak with DonorSee Charity’s Founder and CEO Gret Glyer to discuss the impact that government lockdowns have had on the impoverished population of Africa. Gret explains why the poorest class of people in Africa, who live on less than $3 a day, have been severely impacted by the lockdowns and why they need them lifted now. Gret also explains how he became so passionate about this issue and why it led him to start his charity DonorSee."
