CORONAVIRUS SOLIDARITY RESPONSE FUND 2020
Your donation to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund supports the International Development & Humanitarian Organization’s global efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Donations support efforts to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need, and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments. We’re all in this fight together. The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund is powered by the Foundations and other international organizations.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS FUND?
The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the International Development & Humanitarian Organization enables individuals, corporations, foundations, and other organizations around the world to directly support IDHO’s global work to help countries prevent, detect, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with the IDHO Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan.
**********ALL AMOUNTS ARE ACCEPTED**********
WHERE DO THE FUNDS GO?
The Funds received will be donated to IDHO to support the Horn of Africa countries according to the COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan. As outlined in the plan, the vast majority of the financial resources needed will help vulnerable and at-risk countries, especially those with weak health systems, to step up their preparedness to prevent COVID-19, enhance their abilities to detect and test for the virus, and bolster their ability to respond to COVID-19 spread. The additional funds will help IDHO directly to fill in funding needs as it coordinates the global response. As the pandemic evolves, resource needs will also change.
HOW WILL THE FUNDS BE USED?
The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund supports IDHO’s work across all countries to prepare for cases, and to respond if cases appear; to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments.
All these activities are guided by the Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan, which organizes the response along three main pillars:
1) Coordination across regions to assess, respond and mitigate risks.
2) Improve country preparedness and response and
3) Accelerate the research and development.
Right now as the needs of the COVID-19 pandemic are rapidly changing, it is critical and most valuable to have flexibility for vital resources to be allocated where they are most needed, as assessed by the IDHO. Therefore, it is not currently possible for donors to earmark donations for use in a specific country.
