Coronavirus Emergency Appeal
“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
Human Appeal has launched an emergency appeal to fight the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19 here in the UK in partnership with Age UK Manchester, Birmingham and Leicester and in nine of the most vulnerable countries in the world.
£15 – emergency food parcel for vulnerable people in the UK
Give just £15, and provide an urgently-needed food parcel to vulnerable, homeless and older people in the UK. Each parcel will include long-life and easy-to prepare foods, such as pasta, porridge, soup, biscuits, cereal, tea, and baked beans, as well as essentials, such as flour, sugar, powdered milk, jam and juice.
£70 family hygiene kit
Each hygiene kit will contain alcohol-based hand sanitizer, soap, surgical face masks, disposable gloves, wet wipes, disinfectant, detergent, toilet paper, and sponges. It will also include an easy-to-understand guide to reducing the risk of catching and spreading the virus.
£140 - provide family with a nutritious, Ramadan food parcel that lasts a family the entire month, as well as a COVID-19 hygiene kit.
With your help, we’re supporting vulnerable communities in the UK as well as distributing family hygiene kits that are customised to protect against COVID-19 in nine countries, with a focus on people living in displacement and refugee camps in Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine, Syria, Somalia, and Yemen.
Please donate and help us to protect a family-of-six from this devastating virus.
The virus has already spread to the countries in which we’re focusing our COVID-19 efforts. But if it reaches camps, where people are already struggling with inadequate healthcare, poor hygiene provisions and overcrowding, it will spread at an alarming rate and is likely to cause a devastating and widespread loss of life.
Dr. Hasan Alked works at our Al Imaan Hospital in Idlib, Syria. “A COVID-19 infection in our region would be disastrous, and the virus would spread rapidly and severely. Medical staff aren’t prepared, equipped or trained to deal with an outbreak of this level, and we are terrified what coronavirus could mean for families that are already weakened, distressed and unable to isolate themselves.”
All Human Appeal field staff who will be in contact with beneficiaries will wear protective N95 masks and have their health monitored at virus screening stations to ensure that they don’t put the most vulnerable at risk.
Human Appeal is experienced in responding to outbreaks. We’ve helped to protect and treat people for dengue fever, malaria, diphtheria, leprosy, cholera and other waterborne diseases.
Give and help us fight COVID-19 in the UK and across the world.
