The COVID-19 pandemic affects us all and the situation is still evolving, with variants emerging to cause further outbreaks. The poorest countries are most at risk and least likely to be prepared for for subsequent waves. Each of us has the power to care for the people around us and those most in need. Your gift of critical medical equipment (e.g. oxygen cylinders, ventilators) and personal protective equipment (PPE) can help to protect frontline workers and support their work to deliver emergency care.
