HOPE's COVID-19 Response
In these uncertain times, the certainty of your compassion and giving is the only HOPE for highly vulnerable families trapped in dire circumstances, bracing for COVID-19 in the coming days and weeks.
A Message From Kim Savage, Executive Director
Our partners in Africa, Asia and the Americas are on the front lines and need your help to care for the people seen every day. We're supporting their efforts to provide immediate relief to families currently caught up in the pandemic and help communities prepare for when COVID-19 reaches their region.
Our emergency efforts to help highly vulnerable families include:
- Directing additional funding to urgent efforts to protect families
- Sending more support to purchase urgently needed food stuffs
- Shipping more containers of medical supplies to communities experiencing chronic shortages
- Helping distribute masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and soap in displaced persons camps
COVID-19 has triggered challenging times for all of us as individuals, in our households and our communities. We at HOPE International are taking decisive measures to keep the financial support flowing to our partners.
You are THE HOPE for families already facing extreme poverty and about to face a devastating crisis more threatening than the life they endure daily.
Please give what you can, so we can do what we can to care.
What We're Doing Nationally
We are prioritizing the safety of our staff, volunteers and supporters and following the recommendations from our Canadian and international health authorities, the Public Health Agency of Canada, provincial health bodies and government and the World Health Organization. We have temporarily suspended our annual spring fundraising dinners Canada-wide and other public engagement activities.
HOPE International Development Agency staff are working from home and our office is closed to the public. We’re following recommended guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada to protect team members who must be in the office from time-to-time, including practicing social distancing and sanitizing work surfaces.
