COVID-19 Crisis: Support women on the frontlines

Donate Now!

We are living amidst one of the greatest global health emergencies the world has ever faced as COVID-19 has reached every county around the globe.

At ActionAid, we are rapidly mobilising to support women on the frontlines of the pandemic.

We know that this virus will have a devastating toll on countries where health systems are weak, and where people living in poverty are already struggling to survive.

With your support we can reach more of those in need by –

  • Communicating life saving prevention information
  • Providing protective equipment for health care workers
  • Supporting vulnerable workers with no income protection
  • Creating safe spaces for women at increased risk of domestic violence

Can you help women protect their communities from the impacts of COVID-19? Make a donation now.

ActionAid's COVID-19 Response

Your donation

As per ActionAid Australia’s emergency fundraising standards, 90% of funds raised from this appeal will go to our emergency response and 10% to fundraising and administration. This is a global appeal so we will be directing funds where there is greatest need and to programs supporting women leading responses to COVID-19.
In the event that funds raised exceed the amount required, to meet the immediate and longer term needs of the people impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, ActionAid Australia will direct donations to our Arise Humanitarian Fund, which helps provide disaster preparedness response and recovery for future emergencies.
