The COVID-19 crisis continues to disproportionately affect vulnerable populations across the globe. As a result, Mayer Brown has been working with its partner organizations to mobilize our resources to help the many individuals, nonprofits and small businesses hurt by the COVID-19 outbreak.
Among other pro bono efforts related to the COVID-19 crisis, Mayer Brown lawyers in the United States are working with the Fosun Foundation to help with legal issues related to the donation of medical protective equipment to healthcare providers in the New York and San Francisco Bay areas. We are providing legal assistance to the nonprofit organization Perfect Strangers, which provides delivery of groceries and other essential items to the most vulnerable members of our communities affected by COVID-19. And we are collaborating with SchoolHouse Connection, a national nonprofit that works to end youth homelessness through education, on research and policy issues to protect homeless youth during the COVID-19 crisis.
