“In Bulgaria, we have seen many examples of entrepreneurs who decided to support the society and made unconditional donations to hospitals and people in need.

Coronavirus culture is emerging around the whole world, spontaneously and creatively, to combat the fear, isolation, and restrictions that society is facing. We should all realize that we can only win if we fight together.
