Will you help vulnerable families protect themselves against coronavirus?

Soap. Masks. Hand sanitiser. Vital weapons against coronavirus. In India alone, more than 200,000 lives have been lost to the pandemic in India. Across the country, hospitals are overrun and oxygen supplies are falling short of demand. 

Across the world, and especially in India, the most marginalised have been hit the hardest. From women and people with disabilities to informal and migrant workers and Dalit communities.

We urgently need your help share life-saving health information on how to prevent catching or spreading coronavirus, as well as ensuring vulnerable families can access vital welfare and healthcare.

We're responding now

Together with our local partners, we are working to limit the impact of coronavirus in some of the most vulnerable communities around the world.

  • We have drawn on our experience from the Ebola crisis and are helping communities to prevent and delay infection.  
  • We are providing essential soap, water and handwashing training, as well as food packages for families who have lost work over lockdown.
  • We are ensuring urgent health messages get through to help keep people safe.
  • We are working through our networks of church partners and faith-based organisations to reach the most vulnerable at this critical time.
  • As the vaccine rollout continues in Ireland & the UK, we are campaigning for fair and equal access to vaccines in the countries that we support.
