Children on the Edge are naturally concerned about the impact that the global spread of coronavirus is likely to have on the slum dwelling, refugee and internally displaced people’s (IDPs) communities we work with.
Through nearly 30 years of working with some of the most marginalised communities, we know that these are nearly always the hardest hit people in times such as these. We are experienced in rapidly adapting our programmes to respond to emerging needs in crisis situations. We are talking regularly with our international partners, working with them to pursue sensible solutions to contain the outbreak and give support to those most affected.
We will continue to keep this page updated over the coming weeks, so check back in for news on how we are supporting the communities that we work with.
