Bill Gates announced this week that he will donate $20 billion to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, reiterating his pledge to donate “virtually all of my wealth to the foundation.”

The 66-year-old co-founder of Microsoft made the announcement on his social media page. The pandemic is one of history’s greatest setbacks. The war in Ukraine is a massive tragedy for the entire world. Climate change is already causing more damage than most models predicted.

The United States has taken a significant step back in terms of gender equality and women’s health. But I’m still optimistic. These setbacks are occurring in the context of two decades of historical progress, and I believe it is possible to mitigate the damage and move forward.

His Post on Twitter reads;

Several huge global setbacks over the past few years have left many people discouraged and wondering whether the world is destined to get worse.

But I remain optimistic. These setbacks are occurring in the context of two decades of historic progress, and I believe it is possible to mitigate the damage and return to the world’s previous pace.

In 2000, Melinda and I founded the @gatesfoundation because we believed that everyone should have the opportunity to live a healthy and productive life. That vision remains unchanged, but the great crises of our time demand that we all do more.
