The world has never faced a crisis like COVID-19. The pandemic is impacting communities everywhere. It’s never been more urgent to support the global response, led by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Donations to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund (SRF) support WHO’s work, including with partners to suppress transmission, reduce exposure, counter misinformation, protect the vulnerable, reduce mortality and morbidity and accelerate equitable access to new COVID-19 tools.
Some donations also support additional Fund partners: African Union/African CDC, the Big 6 Youth Organizations, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), the World Food Programme (WFP).
The Fund is powered by the WHO Foundation, in collaboration with the UN Foundation and a global network of fiduciary partners. Donations can be made via this website from anywhere in the world, with online tax benefits provided to donors based in Switzerland, the USA and Canada. Donors from certain European countries, the UK, China, Japan, and the USA, who desire tax receipts may wish to give online to our Fund partners in these countries.
As of Sept 7, 2021 SRF partners have raised and received pledges for
USD $ 254 193 968
from over 674 859 donors
