sign statements

Please see two opportunities for NGOs to sign on to two requests regarding COVID-19 and older persons.. See each request and their statement/letter.   The first is a statement prepared by CONGO on “COVID-19 Recovery: Building Back Better.  This one may be signed by NGOs with ECOSOC Consultative Status and sign on must be submitted by midnight on May 27 EDT. The second is from HelpAge International asking sign on for a letter to Secretary General Antonio Guterres identifying gaps in the UN system in addressing COVID-19 and older persons and asking him to share a plan of action to address these gaps. This letter requires a response by May 28.  Information as to emails for sending your NGOs support are in each of the requests.
