Community and Environmental Development During Coronavirus

With so much uncertainty in the world today, a global health crisis underway, and a lack of volunteers and funding, a significant number of the 150 projects we partner with are facing financial and staffing difficulties. Still, they continue to support their local communities. We would like to highlight just some of the amazing initiatives in the field of development during coronavirus underway right now:

Africa

Eswatini – Supporting vulnerable children in the Kingdom of Eswatini with food delivery for the neediest families. 

Ghana – Supplying soap and antibacterial sprays to the most vulnerable.

Morocco – Still in lockdown. Supporting disadvantaged families in the Medina of Rabat. Distributing food.

Namibia – Just finished installing a new solar water pump to help a local village obtain access to clean, fresh water. Busy in the field monitoring elephants movements.

Asia-Pacific

Cambodia – Working on distance learning plans for local school children. Supporting staff and their families by continuing to provide salaries. Handing out activity worksheets, pencils, crayons, and paper twice a week so students can continue learning from home.

Indonesia – Feeding, caring for, and providing medical treatment for animals rescued from trafficking.

Philippines – Conducting medical missions in underserved communities.

Latin America

Providing eco-sustainable homes, livelihoods and food security via organic farming for abandoned or abused children. Buying seeds for crops and feed for farm animals.
