Other action for Opray Winfrey, she made a plea to convince other personalities, rich and influential celebrities to put their hands in the pocket to support families hard hit by the health crisis with unprecedented economic repercussions in the homes of middle classes because she says: “The reason I decided to talk about it is that I think people who have a lot of money will have to take matters into their own hands. Even when this virus is gone, there will still be devastation for those people who can’t work and couldn’t work for months, who lived day to day on their wages, who have used all their savings, these people are going to need help.”

According to Oprah Winfrey, this financial assistance will allow families or people who will benefit from it to be able to fend for themselves or create opportunities to get by. “I always thought it was better to teach someone to fish… but sometimes some people absolutely need a fish and a piece of bread,” she said.
