The corona epidemic has made a huge difference in people’s lives. Corona taught some good habits among the people who caused illness and took lives. It also increased the tendency to help peers. This is according to the World Giving Index 2021 by the British charity Aid Foundation. By 2020, 55% of the world’s adults, or about 300 million people, will have helped strangers. 31% of people donated in cash. Every 5th person in the world volunteers to spend time in social service. The company has conducted surveys in 114 countries. In it, all the countries gave clarity on 3 points.
