The Global Guardians: Slovak pilot volunteers create online network to deliver supplies

At the height of the coronavirus pandemic in Slovakia, Roman Benedek, a pilot and software engineer, made a public appeal on social media for pilots with private jets to form a volunteer team to deliver masks, thermometers, protective suits and other supplies around the country.
