COVID-19 emergency

Right now, 195 countries and territories¹ are host to confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. The World Health Organisation has declared a global pandemic.

The conflict and disaster affected communities Act for Peace serves are not as equipped to cope with the virus as we are in Australia.

With limited access to food, clean water, basic hygiene facilities and medical care; many are living in cramped, unsanitary conditions that increase the risk of infection. We are extremely worried about them.

The pandemic is expected to be a devastating crisis for refugees and other vulnerable communities Act for Peace supports.

Through local partners on the ground, Act for Peace is constantly monitoring the situation and preparing to respond to meet urgent needs as they arise.

In addition to looking after our own families, please help support others around the world most at-risk to this crisis.

A gift from you today will help Act for Peace respond quickly to the needs of vulnerable communities who are at severe risk of COVID-19.

With limited access to essentials and basic health and hygiene; families like Joury’s are not only at much greater risk of infection, but also don’t have access to medical care – care that could mean the difference between life and death if they got sick.
