“Your donations will ensure that these front-line workers can put our global, three-part plan into place so that we can save lives now, protect the incredible progress we’ve made together towards ending poverty, and build a world that is kinder, healthier and more ready to deal with shocks in the future.

It will take all of us working together to survive, rebuild, and heal.”
