Fair Distribution of Covid 19 Vaccine
The following call was issued by the Elijah Board of World Religious on Dec. 2, 2020, at the conclusion of its ninth Biennial meeting. The meeting took place online, due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the following call addresses realities related to the coronavirus in a global context.
Encouraged by the happy prospect of the speedy distribution of a vaccine to remedy the illness currently afflicting the world,
We strongly urge all governments to assure that the vaccine will reach all nations and their inhabitants equally.
We all share the age-old lesson:
Humanity is one body;
When one part of the body aches all other parts feel it.
Nobody shall be left behind.
May we all – in the name of The All Merciful One – draw strength from each other
