In order to raise public awareness and spread the message that we are all together in this struggle, the General Secretariat for Public Diplomacy, Religious and Consular Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs created a video in support of the "Stay Home" campaign, which it posted on the ministry's facebook.

Entitled "Stay at Home, Traveling through Literature", ambassadors from foreign countries in Athens appear to recite excerpts from Greek poetry of their choice, either in their own language, or in English or directly in Greek.
