The world is facing an unprecedented challenge with communities and economies everywhere affected by the growing COVID-19 pandemic. The world is coming together to combat the COVID-19 pandemic bringing governments, organizations from across industries and sectors and individuals together to help respond to this global outbreak. The outpouring of global solidarity and support sparked by this shared challenge has been phenomenal.


We have drawn up a list of some of the organisations around the world that are raising funds to tackle the pandemic and help people:
The World Health Organization (WHO)

Donations support WHO’s work to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments.

Civil Protection Department Italy

Since the beginning of the epidemiological emergency of the COVID-19 virus the solidarity of the community remained very strong and committed
For this reason - as foreseen in the "Cura Italia" Decree Law - the Civil Protection Department opened a dedicated bank account.

Ospedale San Raffaele di Milano - Italy

At this very delicate stage, from a social and health point of view, we can also do something. Doctors and scientists are doing a very important job and we would like to support them concretely.
For this reason we have thought to help the activation of a new intensive care unit at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan.

Funds and grants are already being established and made to tackle the impact of COVID-19, the coronavirus pandemic.
This list features funding to help individuals affected, charities hit by a drop in income, and to support medical research into tackling or ameliorating the virus.

International Committee of the Red Cross

COVID-19 represents a dramatic threat to life in war-torn countries. The impact of an outbreak of the virus could be nothing short of catastrophic. Health systems in areas of conflict are already severely strained, where millions do not have access to basic health care. Fleeing violence, people seek shelter in crowded camps with inadequate sanitation.

Save the Children - Coronavirus and Kids

Across America, school districts are making the difficult decision to close due to coronavirus. An unintended consequence for kids is losing valuable learning and instruction time.
The earliest years are most important for a child’s development, and missing out on learning now could have devastating impact on their future growth. As national leaders in early childhood education, Save the Children is committed to help children and families during this uncertain time by providing learning resources for our nation’s youngest learners.

Plan International - COVID-19 pandemic appeal

Although children appear to be less impacted by COVID-19 than older adults, the pandemic will affect the environment in which they grow and develop. Our experience of working on the Ebola crisis shows health emergencies affect girls and boys, women and men differently.
