Donate to our COVID-19 APPEAL
Your donation will help communities in need to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic
In developing countries, most people live day-to-day in the informal economy, earning enough money to buy food and essentials, but with no savings or safety net. The restrictions on movement that were imposed to prevent Covid-19 spreading have been catastrophic for many people, leaving them hungry and in fear of losing their homes because of an inability to pay rent.
Responding to these communities in this pandemic involves more than just providing them with masks and sanitiser. Cura personalis or ‘care for the whole person’ is a key principle of the Jesuit ethos. It is a holistic approach to health – physical, psychological, and spiritual – which informs our response to the needs of vulnerable communities who are dealing with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Please donate to help vulnerable communities to deal with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic by supporting an emergency response which goes beyond protection from the virus. Your support will help to provide a community in need with food and other essentials they need to deal with lockdown measures, as well as the healthcare and sanitation supplies to protect them from infection from Covid-19.
