Our reports:

> Armenia is battling its neighbour Azerbaijan over the breakaway territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. Our correspondent met with Armenian reservists preparing to go and fight, plus the volunteers collecting food and clothing for those affected by the violence.

> In Mexico, the economy has been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. Charities are now not only helping the poorest but also the middle class. Our correspondent met some of those going to soup kitchens for the first time.

Germany is trying out the much debated universal basic income to help those who are struggling the most in these times of coronavirus. Our correspondents report on how the concept, often dismissed as unfeasible, is gaining ground.

> And can Algerian beaches generate huge revenue in a post-Covid-19 world? The country's long coastline is largely untouched and could in the future attract foreign tourists if authorities take that path. Our correspondent has the story.
