Global - Help Stop the Spread of COVID-19
Support health workers in the battle against the coronavirus outbreak.
About this Giving Opportunity
The global outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. As of March 15, 2020, more than 153,000 cases have been confirmed in 144 countries and territories worldwide. Governments, NGOs, and healthcare agencies around the world are engaged in containing the outbreak and safeguarding people. Increasing awareness of the virus and supporting health workers are now crucial elements of the global response.
We can help support frontline healthcare workers around the globe. There is an urgent need for many different kinds of supplies. These include masks, protection suits, goggles and medical testing equipment. Also, health workers are in need of food, lodging, training and support while they fight this public health crisis. When you donate to this Giving Opportunity, you will help:
- CDC Foundation support health agencies around the world in the efforts to contain and treat the virus
- COVID-19 Solidarity Response For WHO via UN Foundation fund the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 response efforts
- Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) - An international organization providing medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare.
