Together we are one!
Solidarity against COVID-19:
Together we are one!
More than just a health crisis, COVID-19 is already having an adverse social and economic impact in the Arab States region, especially among communities in low-income countries and countries facing fragility.
In response, UNDP has launched the “Solidarity against COVID-19: Together we are one!” campaign. This initiative offers a platform to profile and support the inspiring and selfless efforts that people in countries around the region are making to prevent the spread of the virus, show solidarity, and especially cope with the impacts of economic reversals and widespread loss of income.
Learn more about the national initiatives below and follow activities on #TogetherAgainstCOVID19.
The campaign brings together local solutions that are providing essential health products, creating employment opportunities, and providing people with basic services.
All contributions will go directly to the projects featured. Join us in solidarity against COVID-19, because together we are stronger, together we are one!
