Covid-19 Fund

The world is facing an unprecedented challenge with communities and economies everywhere affected by the growing COVID-19 pandemic. The world is coming together to combat the COVID-19 pandemic bringing governments, organizations from across industries and sectors and individuals together to help respond to this global outbreak. The outpouring of global solidarity and support sparked by this shared challenge has been phenomenal.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is leading and coordinating the global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic.

Everyone can now support directly the response coordinated by WHO. People and organizations who want to help fight the pandemic and support WHO and partners can now donate through the COVID-Solidarity Response Fund for WHO at www.COVID19ResponseFund.org.

DEC Cyclone Idai Appeal

Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe a week ago, leaving behind a trail of destruction, killing 700 people and affecting an estimated 2.6 million people.  

Strong winds and widespread flooding ripped apart roads, bridges, houses, schools and health facilities and submerged vast swathes of agricultural land.  

Although most river levels may have now peaked, flooding remains severe and the full scale of the disaster has yet to become clear as search and rescue operations continue.  

With little clean water available, cholera cases have been reported and there is a high risk of outbreaks of other waterborne diseases.  

Conditions in Mozambique in particular remain challenging and some areas are still inaccessible, but aid is starting to get through.  

DEC member charities are working closely with national partners to support the rescue and relief effort, delivering clean water, emergency shelter materials and blankets, food such as pulses and maize flour, and urgent health assistance. 

People need help now. Please donate today.
