COVID-19 will double number of families facing life-threatening food insecurity. You can help by supporting trusted, local food relief projects in the location of your choice.
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. Whether rich or poor, young or old, no life has been left unchanged by the pandemic.
Yet for families in extreme poverty, the economic disruption caused by COVID-19 can mean starvation. COVID-19 will cause critical malnutrition for an additional 7 million children under age 5. Many of these children live in Asia, where 350 million people are already undernourished.
In response to this growing crisis, hundreds of local nonprofit organizations are mobilizing to deliver emergency food rations and livelihood support. Thanks to our generous donors, Give2Asia has already funded US$6.9 million in food assistance to support 2.3 million families across 16 countries.
This winter, the need will be even greater. That’s why we’re dedicating 100% of new donations to our COVID-19 campaign to local organizations providing food security to low-income families in Asia, through the end of 2020.
We know the pandemic won’t last forever, but hunger can’t wait for the vaccine. Please give what you can—and ask your employer to do the same. Together, we can help families across the Asia-Pacific weather the pandemic…and be ready to thrive again once the economic crisis has passed.
As an added incentive, a generous Give2Asia donor will match up to US$100,000 in donations through the end of 2020. Donate now to feed at-risk families in the location of your choice:
We know there are many worthy causes to support this year. That’s why we chose a cause where every dollar matters. Whether you can give $5 or $5,000, your gift will make an enormous difference for a family in need.
