May 5, 2020

90% of students are unable to attend school worldwide and millions of families face financial, work or health difficulties. The global consequences of the coronavirus epidemic have an unprecedented impact on children’s well-being and education.

The LEGO Group has been inspired by the work of thousands of great charities, non-profit and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working to provide families with basic services during these trying times, whether it is to provide access to education or to support the youngest members of their community. to feel valuable and safe.

However, in most cases, the services provided by organizations are in unprecedented need. That’s why the LEGO Group and the LEGO Foundation are working together to support children affected by the coronavirus with USD 50 million. Part of the amount will be offered to existing and new partners in their local communities to help them support the basic care of the children concerned and to give them the opportunity to learn through play, thereby supporting their well-being and developing their skills.

In Hungary, Amigos captures rare, joyful moments for young patients in the country's hospitals. The foundation is run by undergraduate students who help children learn the language and prepare the lesson during the visits, and in addition to the joint skills development game, they are also surprised with a little extra.

As current restrictions prohibit access to hospitals, a donation from the LEGO Group helped create Amigos Online. This way, volunteers can keep in touch with their little protégés online and play, learn and laugh together even in these difficult times. An important part of the project is to provide support in as many places as possible, so in cooperation with the Smile Foundation, the two organizations will broaden and strengthen the achieved impact with qualified therapists.
