The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the Coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic.
According to the WHO, as of 12 May 2020, there are over 4 million confirmed cases of coronavirus globally, and over 283,000 people have sadly died.
Across the globe in Africa, Asia, Europe and further afield, communities are at high risk of contracting COVID-19.
As with any crisis, those who are already vulnerable are certainly at higher risk.
In the midst of conflict in Syria, refugee families were already lacking shelter, food and medical equipment – because of the outbreak of Coronavirus, their struggles are increasing.
Getting critical access to food and hygiene is incredibly challenging at this time. Especially for vulnerable communities – including displaced families in Myanmar, people in Yemen and for those recovering from the effects of natural disaster across Africa and Asia.
Above all, we are committed to supporting vulnerable communities here in the UK and across the globe.

Across Ireland and in areas such as Syria, Gaza and Ethiopia, vulnerable people are at risk, therefore we need your support.
