COVID-19 has hit every country where AJWS works, threatening the lives & livelihoods of some of the world’s most vulnerable people. We are responding by providing critical humanitarian aid, life-saving health information and flexible funding. Donate today:

Heavy-handed enforcement of COVID-19 curfews and lockdowns—especially targeting the poor and most marginalized—not only fuels panic, but may also heighten transmission of the virus.

COVID-19 misinformation is rampant, making the virus even deadlier. We're proud to stand by grantees like SAKS, AREDE, & AyiboPost as they weather this crisis Haiti. These groups are raising awareness through content about good hygiene & social distancing.

Domestic & garment workplaces rarely offer fair wages or safe environments—which, in the age of #COVID19, can be completely devastating. Grassroots gender justice groups fighting for their rights & protections are leading the way on #EqualPayDay.

Even during a pandemic, women performing essential work aren’t paid equally. Women working as grocery store cashiers & physicians caring for #COVID19 patients are only being paid about 65% of what their male counterparts are being paid, on average. #EqualPayDay. Via @MomsRising.
