Coronavirus (COVID-19) prevention for refugees and displaced people worldwide

The virus has left few places untouched, spreading throughout the world at a speed that no one could have envisaged and transforming our daily lives in a way that few imagined. While it is clear that the virus does not distinguish between nationality or race, the fact is that some of the most vulnerable people on the earth, the over 80 million refugees and displaced people, are even more vulnerable at a time like this. 

“COVID-19 pandemic has brought many aspects of life to a standstill – but wars and other crises have not stopped, and humanitarian action to save lives and alleviate suffering remains imperative. UNHCR is on the frontline of prevention of coronavirus in refugee communities. Please support our work to help protect more refugees with essential life-saving assistance to cope with this global health crisis.” - Philip Thorpe, Senior Protection Associate and Officer-in-Charge of The UNHCR Sub-Office at Hong Kong SAR China  

With small amounts of money, vital emergency response can be mobilised to provide basic healthcare services, cash assistance for families to acquire soap, disinfectants and medicine, and infrastructure including clean water systems and sanitation facilities where it is needed most..

Please help today to ensure we are prepared and can do all we can to contain this emergency.
