Around the world, our sources tell us

COVID-19’s effects extend beyond documented cases. Most recorded cases remain focused around urban civilians, who have better testing facilities and essential supplies available to them. The health and safety of women and children, the stability of local economies and access to health and information resources are crucial data for proper representation. By focusing on the entire global sphere, we’re serving communities today by addressing their unique situations while they occur and as they evolve.

We are regularly gaining insight at the grassroots level through our local ground partners, regional coordinators and beneficiaries so that we can continue to offer catered support as it’s required. Worldwide, we are building services that effectively provide relief today and strive to durably uplift communities for as long as the pandemic may alter our lives.
