More than a year since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in January 2020, every aspect of peoples’ lives remains affected. More than 4 million people have lost their lives to this virus.
The pandemic is far from over, as we have recently seen in India, Nepal, Indonesia and across South Asia, as well as other parts of the world.  In places where people were already dealing with things like poverty, hunger and war, Covid-19 has just made things all the more difficult.

Red Cross staff and volunteers around the world are on the frontline of the pandemic response helping people in many ways including providing oxygen, ambulance services, first aid and supporting the vaccine rollout. 

The Global COVID-19 Appeal supports communities affected by the pandemic, wherever the need is greatest. Please donate now to support this work. As cases continue to rise, we cannot afford to leave anyone behind
Thank you!
