Support the brave women leading our COVID-19 response

With no savings and little or no state support, many people who were already living hand-to-mouth in the world’s poorest countries have nothing to fall back on. Women and girls are particularly vulnerable, as gender-based violence continues to rise under lockdowns, and many girls forced out of school will not be able to return.

Please support the women leading our COVID-19 response (pictured). They are working tirelessly to help stop the spread in their communities.

€25 could provide an emergency relief package containing food, cash transfers and sanitiser to a woman or girl in need.


€50 could provide one month’s worth of meals at a shelter for a woman or girl who has escaped violence.

€100 could provide food for one month to a family who has lost their livelihoods.

€250 could provide awareness-raising training to make sure hard-to-reach communities are aware of the dangers of Covid-19, and how to stop its spread.
