COVID-19 Emergency Appeal - Help us protect the most vulnerable.
In late 2019, the first case of COVID-19 was recorded. Today the spread of this disease is global, the World Health Organisation has declared it a global pandemic. COVID-19 is now affecting 185 counties around the world, 300,000 cases have been confirmed globally, 12,000 have died and many more remain undiagnosed. *
These figures are rising every hour of every day.
While we in the UK struggle to contain this virus, people living in poverty, without adequate hygiene, sanitation or medical care around the world are at seriously increased risk of contracting this deadly virus.
This is a serious health emergency. There is no time to waste.
We need your help to protect those who are most vulnerable and protect our world. Our emergency response will be concentrated on those living in poverty and the greatest need across Somalia, Sudan, Myanmar, Cambodia, Bosnia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Yemen.
