Prince Charles took another massive step to address the issues surrounding the country’s mishaps amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Prince Charles stood for the Britons as they fight against the coronavirus pandemic by appealing for urgent help.
The coronavirus pandemic already affected the lives of people all over the globe. In the U.K., specifically, people’s lives altered dramatically.
The U.K. is one of the red spots of the crisis. According to the warning included in the report by Resolution Foundation, they warned that the pandemic could increase the youth unemployment rate.
During that time, they expected it to be down to 640,000 this year. They created the data, although youth has a lower fatality rate than the elderly.
Prince Charles Took a Step vs. COVID-19
The Prince of Wales, for his part, penned an article for the Sunday Telegraph, where he unrolled The Prince’s Trust on the table. Per the royal prince, it could support young people who remain unemployed during the pandemic.
“Over all these years since the Trust was launched, there has never been an easy time,” he said. “However, there has never been a time as uniquely challenging as the present, when the pandemic has left perhaps another million young people needing urgent help to protect their futures.”
He said that the Prince’s Trust has been helping young people to find jobs and training. Thus, this keeps them confident and skilled despite facing the unemployment period.
Prince Charles also pledged that he and the Trust will unceasingly provide help to young people.
