With local partners, we’re delivering food to some of the hardest hit families. We will prioritize the most vulnerable children and families and deliver basic food (grains, oil, beans) and soap door-to-door to keep these families alive.
We are working with national health departments and systems to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in these countries. Through soap distribution, provision of clean water and hygiene education (hand-washing, physical distancing, disinfecting assistive devices), we are teaching families and communities how to keep themselves and their neighbours safe.
We are bolstering the stretched health systems in these countries – giving our partners the ability to respond to urgent trauma and life and death surgeries for especially vulnerable kids. By doing what we do best, we can take pressure off government hospitals as they focus on treating cases of COVID-19.
