COVID-19: Two Years On

By Daniel Russell | Development Intern

Thank you so much for your support of this project. I’m writing to share some updates from ActionAid’s COVID-19 emergency response. We appreciate you taking the time to learn about and act in response to this crisis.

 As we entered the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, we doubled down on our efforts to ensure that everyone, everywhere had fair access to vaccines, tests, and treatments. We joined organizations around the world to support a People’s Vaccine and mobilized more than 65,000 individuals to demand the Biden Administration put public health ahead of big pharma profits and increase access to the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition to our advocacy, we provided tangible support by continuing to distribute emergency supplies to communities in more than 40 countries, reaching more than 25 million people with direct and indirect services. Relying on longstanding partnerships with local organizations and building on our response from 2020, we sourced and supplied hygiene and disinfection kits, offered gender-based violence trainings, provided psychosocial counselling, and distributed food kits, vouchers, and cash transfers to support people’s immediate needs.

 Some examples of how your support fueled our response:

  • In Haiti, 80,000 people received hygiene kits, COVID-19 prevention materials, and unconditional cash transfers.
  • Individuals came together to demand fair, rapid, and equitable access to vaccines for nearly 5 million Palestinians living under occupation in the West Bank and Gaza and excluded from Israel’s distribution program.
  • In Liberia, 57 communities received regular food and non-food item support, in addition to educational packages for school aged children.
  • In Burundi, over 93,000 women and children received handwashing stations, hygiene kits, and COVID-19 health and safety materials.
  • In India, 13,601 girls received psychosocial support and counselling. In Nepal, 25,801 families received nutritious, non-perishable items and cooked food, while 885 women received support for vegetable farming.

 As the pandemic continues to evolve, your commitment to human rights matters more than ever. Thank you for your support.
