Urgent Needs for Children Affected by COVID-19


The global community is confronting unprecedented challenges in the face of COVID-19. The ripple effect is closing shelters and schools, leaving children without access to clean water, and putting migrant youth at increased risk. Youth from Peru to Kenya are being affected by the crisis, even though the pandemic has not yet taken full hold. Your donation helps grassroots organizations meet urgent needs such as hygiene kits and emergency community outreach in places they're most needed.

Many of us are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by practicing social distancing and self-isolation. However, there are children and youth worldwide who live in social contexts that simply can't follow this strategy. Forced closures among shelters and schools, limited access to clean water and sanitation, and the spread of misinformation is completely disrupting young people in these communities - leaving many at high risk.


Global Fund for Children has cultivated a global network of grassroots organizations that serve children and youth. This network provides crucial insight into how COVID-19 is directly affecting young people in communities that are usually overlooked. Your donation goes to the heart of these communities to fulfill urgent needs for hygiene kits, emergency community outreach, relocation assistance, and more. As this pandemic unfolds, we expect a greater need for relief efforts.

Long-Term Impact

Grassroots organizations, with deep knowledge of and connections to their communities, are uniquely positioned to protect children and youth when crises emerge. Your donation provides them with the on-the-ground resources they need to keep children safe and secure during COVID-19 and beyond. It also helps build their long-term capacity to support children who are most at risk in the face of future pandemics.
