GLOBAL PANDEMIC RELIEF FUND

In every place we work, the Aga Khan Development Network is at the forefront of the COVID-19 response to provide urgent humanitarian assistance, slow the virus’s spread, care for the infected, and respond to the broad consequences of the virus.

Many supporters have come forward seeking ways to contribute to the AKDN’s uniquely wide-ranging work to address the crisis. The Global Pandemic Relief Fund has been established to respond to this outpouring of generosity and creates a one-stop portal to support this critical work across all AKDN agencies, including FOCUS Humanitarian Assistance.

HOW YOUR GIFT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the generosity of our donors and the collaboration of our long-standing institutional partners, the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) has worked with communities in Africa and Asia to reach:

  • 9.4 million people with public awareness messages on COVID-19 prevention;
  • 800,000 people through social safety nets, such as cash transfers and food distribution;
  • 135,000 children through distance learning – from early childhood development to secondary studies.

Here are just a few examples of the AKDN’s response efforts on the ground to date:

“CoronaCheck,” a new mobile application that allows users to conduct self-assessments at home while raising awareness of measures to prevent COVID-19, was launched by the Aga Khan University Hospital in collaboration with Alberta Health Services.

Across Tajikistan, AKF and partners installed drinking water supply systems in several small villages. Reliable and safe access to clean water will help protect these communities during the current COVID-19 crisis.
