Like so many events the 2020 Four Freedoms Awards ceremony on April 14th in Middelburg had to be postponed due to the Corona-virus pandemic.
All around the world people are faced with the great challenge of this pandemic. Millions of people are under various forms of lockdown in a bid to stop the spread of the virus, hundreds of thousands of people are infected by it, thousands of people have died.
We live in challenging times. In his own time President Franklin Delano Roosevelt replaced bitterness and fear with hope and faith with a positive vision of a world based on four freedoms.
In his spirit the Four Freedoms Awards Laureates and the Roosevelt Foundation want to bring a message of hope for all those people who live in fear today or are limited in their freedom as a consequence of the pandemic and to support all those who are committed to help their fellow men in these difficult times.
Together we can overcome this pandemic.
