URGENT: COVID-19 has made inroads in two of the most populous Pacific Island nations – Fiji and Papua New Guinea.
We are on the ground in Fiji, Papua New Guinea as well as India and some of the world's poorest countries, like Bangladesh and Nepal. We're:
helping hospitals get oxygen tanks and other medical equipment,
distributing essential hygiene equipment,
providing emergency food and cash assistance to households,
upgrading water and sanitation systems at refugee camps and health facilities,
continuing hygiene training and awareness-raising activities.
Unchecked, COVID-19 could leave half the global population in poverty. We’re doing everything we can — but we urgently need your help to do more.
