WHILE THE DOLLAR MATCH HAS BEEN MET, OUR CRISIS APPEAL TARGET HAS NOT YET BEEN REACHED

YOUR GENEROSITY CAN HELP SOME OF THE MOST VULNERABLE FAMILIES SURVIVE THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

DONATE NOW

We are facing both a humanitarian and economic crisis, of proportions not seen before. In countries such as India and Indonesia, many people living in poverty are not able to work due to restrictions and the face-to-face interactions their businesses require. For families in poor communities, with little savings to access, this could mean months without income – which means no food for their children and no money for soap or sanitation.

Many of these families are living out the pandemic in crowded, unsanitary slums where social distancing is virtually impossible. Too many people are likely to now have no income and nowhere to turn.

‘Staying at home’ can mean ‘starving at home’ for many without additional help, with hunger and sickness both very real threats.

Our mandate is clear: to ensure that the world’s most vulnerable are not left to fend for themselves throughout this crisis.

I WANT TO HELP

WHAT WE'RE DOING

Community health training on proper handwashing, personal hygiene and nutritionSome of our partners are able to provide families with essentials like  food and soapWe’re ensuring we can be there with small loans to enable families to restart their businesses  and rebuild their lives

This end of financial year, you can help families in poverty survive this crisis. To date, tens of thousands of protective masks and hand sanitiser have been distributed to families through our local partners. Food vouchers have also been provided, while electricity costs have been subsidised for households in need. Please, will you join us to help the most vulnerable families survive this crisis?
