Protect the most vulnerable

The Challenge

COVID-19 poses a catastrophic threat to children and families living in vulnerable communities around the world; from refugee camps, remote regions of Asia and the Pacific, to food-insecure countries in southern Africa.

The simplest way to halt the spread is by social distancing and good hygiene, but over 2.5 billion people live without access to running water to even wash their hands.

Without basic sanitation, vulnerable communities will be decimated by COVID-19. Millions of children will lose their parents - and with this loss, their education and chance for a brighter future.

Plan International is expertly placed to respond to this crisis and support vulnerable communities globally with hygiene kits, clean water and crucial public health information.
