A Staying Connected Series virtual discussion about how COVID-19 is impacting developing countries.
The COVID-19 pandemic is stretching the coping capacity of even the best-prepared countries. Yet the world has barely begun to come to grips with how the outbreak threatens the world’s poorest communities. The pandemic could thrust fragile societies into even deeper despair and place the most vulnerable people—including women, girls, refugees, and migrants—at particular risk. CARE is rushing aid to those at greatest risk in 50 countries, as people prepare for the coming wave of infections. Join us to explore how the pandemic might impact these countries, and what CARE is doing about it.
