Pushing through a pandemic with your help


This summer is not turning out as we’d hoped. In the US and abroad, communities are grappling with the impacts of the Delta variant. And COVID-19 vaccines remain out of reach for millions of people, most of whom live in low-income countries. I’m writing to you from Portugal, where I'm checking in on my family many months after the pandemic upended our lives.

Remarkably, GlobalGiving partners remain energized, compassionate, and agile in responding to this prolonged global health crisis. These local leaders are delivering life-saving oxygen, food, psychosocial services, and comfort to communities around the world. 

  • To address the global shortage of ventilators, Asociación Civil Ingeniería sin Fronteras Argentina created a low-capacity kit that expands existing commercial ventilator capacity by up to four times. This technology addresses the short-term problem of ventilator shortages and saves lives.
  • Iraq's health infrastructure is in poor condition after years of war, and hundreds of doctors are infected with COVID-19. The Iraqi Children Foundation’s work has never been more critical. Their team is providing nutrition and hygiene packages to orphans, kids who are unhoused, and other children and their families in need in Iraq. 
  • The COVID-19 crisis is also an information crisis, and journalists are the first responders. Internews is providing financial and advisory support for local journalists and news outlets so they can continue to provide life-saving information.

Through your generosity, we awarded $1.5 million in emergency grants to 101 nonprofits providing COVID-19 relief services in 37 countries across five continents.

As we navigate the uncertain times ahead, I’m confident that the generous support of donors like you and the commitment of our nonprofit partners will continue to save lives, strengthen the resilience of communities worldwide, and cultivate hope.

In gratitude and solidarity,

Sandrina + the GlobalGiving Team

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
