Call for donations for Covid-19 Prevention and Emergency Aid Fund
Projects urgently need support for important measures in the areas of Prevention, Health and Food Supply, Education, as well as Work and Income
The Corona crisis is confronting people in all parts of the world with unprecedented challenges. The consequences of the ongoing and sometimes intensified “lock-downs” are most devastating for people in need, especially children and young people, and affect all our projects. While people in Germany can continue to lead an almost orderly life thanks to a comparatively good social security system and extensive emergency aid packages provided by the German government, the situation in many of our project countries looks significantly worse. Job losses or bans on exercising their professions have the consequence that young adults and their families have to survive without any income at all. In densely populated slums there is no possibility to keep the physical distancing measures, food prices are rising very strongly in some places and in some parts there is no access to clean drinking water anymore.
