Protect Vulnerable Children
Coronavirus knows no borders.
It is a global threat and demands a global response. The virus is already having devastating consequences for children.
With the pandemic now spreading into some of the world’s poorest countries, there is a real danger that progress made on improving children’s lives will see a reversal, especially for girls and children affected by conflict.
We must act now to help protect these vulnerable children.
SCAN and its supporters are advocating Congress to provide no less than $12 billion for the COVID-19 international response.
We are pushing for the funding to include significant resources for emergency global health activities, humanitarian assistance, and flexible resources to respond to address immediate, large-scale emergencies.
We can’t allow coronavirus to further devastate the lives of millions of vulnerable children around the world, including children living in refugee camps. Ask your member of Congress to fund humanitarian relief efforts today!
