2021 Global Focus PROJECTS
Here are the projects happening now, that you supported:
India | COVID-19 Response
-India’s second wave of COVID-19 is proving to be deadly. Cases are increasing dramatically and threatening the taxed healthcare system. Hospitals are running out of beds and oxygen, and patients are dying before they can be transferred to another facility.
-Kolkata Mercy Hospital has a desperate need for ICU ventilators and non-invasive breathing machines to treat COVID-19. Donating towards these two hospitals will save lives in the fight against COVID-19.
Bangladesh | COVID-19 Response
-A massive fire swept through the Rohingya Refugee Camp located in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh in March 2021, causing displacement and destruction.
-With refugee shelters made of bamboo frames and tarpaulins, built less than 1 foot apart, the fire spread rapidly and affected 26,486 households, leaving 126,381 refugees destitute and squatting in nearby open areas.
-This project will respond to the immediate needs of 430 vulnerable families with Crisis Response Packs to subsidize emergency food rations, provide protection from insect borne disease and provide utensils so families can gather water and prepare food.
-Zimbabwe is in the middle of a food emergency. Families are struggling to grow and purchase their own food because of climate and economic shocks.

-This project will be matched 4:1 by the Canadian government.
-Political conflict has caused widespread displacement and food insecurity in South Sudan.
