COVID-19 is disrupting and destroying lives everywhere, but it poses an existential threat to vulnerable people in the developing world. Right now, American Jewish World Service is supporting local, grassroots organizations to take immediate action to protect their communities—places with high rates of poverty, limited medical care, poor sanitation and crowded housing.
Right now, AJWS is supporting 487 social change organizations in 19 countries in Africa, Asia, Central America and the Caribbean. Today, those organizations are on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19. They are:
*Distributing humanitarian aid including food, soap, hand sanitizer and protective masks.
*Spreading life-saving information about COVID-19 prevention through radio broadcasts, social media, local journalism and a toolkit that AJWS developed and distributed in 10 languages.
*Protecting the human rights of minorities being unjustly blamed and persecuted by their governments and communities for the pandemic.
