SWISS PHILANTHROPY Foundation. We are all affected by the growing COVID-19 outbreak. It’s an unprecedented health challenge and we know people and organizations everywhere want to help. The World Health Organization is leading and coordinating the global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the outbreak.
The greatest need right now is to help the most vulnerable people in countries with the weakest health systems. Donations support work to track and understand the spread of the virus, to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information, and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests and treatments.
The WHO launched the first and only pooled fund for individuals, businesses, and organizations to contribute to the global COVID-19 response. The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund will bolster global efforts to prevent, detect, and respond to the growing novel coronavirus outbreak.
To expand the global network of donors WHO partnered with two charitable foundations: The United Nations Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation. These two foundations will receive donated funds, which will then be used by the World Health Organization and partners to support countries according to the COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan.
In addition, the Transnational Giving Europe Network, of which Swiss Philanthropy Foundation is the Swiss representative, will facilitate donations across Europe.
