#westayathome

More than one billion people are confined to homes at this moment. A situation, nobody could ever imagine a few weeks ago. During this particular period without precedent, we want to continue to tell stories about families around the globe. But this time, they don’t give tips about their home town but tells us how they handle the current situation, the homeschooling, home office with kids, about fear and hope for a changing future.
