The COVID-19 pandemic has left the whole world in fear and confusion as an ever single person on the planet is at risk.
The fact that we are all directly or indirectly affected by the increasing COVID-19 pandemic makes it a collective responsibility to contribute to bringing it to an end.
It’s an unprecedented health difficulty spreading like wildfire, and the WHO knows that people and organizations everywhere are willing to help.
The World Health Organization is leading and coordinating the global effort, as they support countries to detect, prevent, and respond to the worldwide pandemic.
The greatest need at the moment is to help ensure all countries of the world are prepared to handle this pandemic, especially those with the poorest and weakest health systems.
Donations from organizations and individuals support WHO’s work to effectively track and understand the spread of the new coronavirus; to ensure that confirmed patients get the best of achievable care they need and that the frontline workers get valuable supplies and the right information; and to also accelerate efforts to test, develop vaccines, and come up with treatments.
