Mobilizing student youth activities in Kyrgyzstan during COVID19 - Enactus American University of Central Asia (AUCA)
The Kyrgyz authorities have failed the policy to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The pandemic has exposed a vast number of health problems. But amazingly, it brought people together, the whole community. Young people were especially active who volunteered, and they saved lives and went to help. People bought medicines themselves and found them for a friend, shared concentrates, and pulse oximeters. And the students of AUCA were also among them. In this presentation, I will talk about the volunteering youth during the coronavirus pandemic in Kyrgyz Republic.
