"COVID-19 has affected our way of life in unprecedented ways," said Marwan Alshaer, KnowledgeCity Managing Director.

With that being said, we are always reminded, in challenging times such as these, of our nation's willpower to come together and get through whatever obstacles may lay ahead. If ever there was a situation to test a corporation's conviction to do right by the people it serves and society as a whole, it is the one we are facing now."
