Global Coronavirus Response

Global Coronavirus Response

As the coronavirus spreads, communities facing poverty and injustice are again on the frontlines of crisis. For so many communities already facing hunger or poverty, the coronavirus will be devastating. Now is the time to show the strength of our community.

With the generous support of people like you, ActionAid is responding immediately. Building on decades of local partnerships, our global response includes the distribution of hygiene kits, public health education, and advocacy for public services.

Cyclone Idai and Kenneth

Cyclone Idai and Kenneth

Cyclone Idai and Kenneth have caused widespread destruction in Southern Africa. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced by the floods and damage. Crops and livestock have been destroyed. We are responding through our community partnerships in the most affected areas, including Sofala, Zambezia and Buzi in Mozambique; Chimanimani in Zimbabwe; and Nsanje and Phalombe in Malawi. We are also responding to a second large storm, Cyclone Kenneth, in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique.

ActionAid's response is community-driven, women-led, and rights-based, which means your donation today invests in change that lasts.

Ethiopia humanitarian crisis

Ethiopia humanitarian crisis

Food insecurity, conflict and violence, climate change, and economic turmoil have pushed more than five million people in Ethiopia – almost 90% of the population – into a state of emergency. The situation continues to worsen as the needs of frontline communities far outweigh what is being provided.

Building on 14 years of partnerships, ActionAid is working on the ground in Southern Tigray, Raya Azebo and Chercher, to support farmers and women and children who have been impacted by the ongoing conflict.

Gaza humanitarian crisis

Gaza humanitarian crisis

As violence continues to escalate in Gaza, women and children are especially at risk. Israeli airstrikes are destroying medical facilities, schools, and homes, leaving thousands homeless.

ActionAid works in communities near the border with Israel that have been most directly affected by the violence. ActionAid's women-led response is supporting the most vulnerable and marginalized individuals and communities.
