The role of volunteers and self-organised groups during the pandemic

Following the relief of the strict quarantine in June 2020, Kyrgyzstan began to experience a sharp increase of COVID-19 accidents. At this time, there was an active mobilisation of volunteers and self-organised groups who set up platforms to help other citizens. During the panel discussion, participants will discuss the organisation of help in different fields and the challenges they faced.
