The COVID-19 outbreak has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Italy, Spain and China are on lockdown, and the United States has declared a state of emergency.
As the infectious Coronavirus continues to spread worldwide, it presents a new threat to millions of vulnerable refugees in Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Yemen and Rohingya. Refugees who are already struggling to survive the horrors of conflict and poverty. Today we take a stand. It is vital that we protect the world’s most vulnerable people.
When Coronavirus reaches refugee camps – where millions of people have no access to medical care, hygiene, and nutrition, the virus is highly likely to spread rapidly. This will have devastating consequences for those with untreated respiratory illnesses, low immunity and other underlying health conditions.
United Hands Relief is committed to responding to this health emergency. Our primary goal is to protect displaced refugees, especially children. Through our teams and partners in the above mentioned countries, UHR will continue delivering life-saving food supplies and medical care to the vulnerable families we support who are at high risk.
But we can’t do this alone. Please donate today to our Protecting Refugees from Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fund. Any amount will help.
Together, we can fight this life-threatening crisis and protect our fellow brothers and sisters in refugee camps.
