By donating to ActionAid, you could help us be there for young women like Nafisa.
Nafisa gave birth to her son in a displacement camp in Somaliland with no medical facilities, or even a midwife to help.
Along with tens of thousands of families, she is seeking refuge from the climate-change related drought devastating Somaliland right now.
And now, communities like hers are facing a catastrophe of immense proportions, as Covid-19 spreads to the world's poorest countries.
This situation is worsening rapidly. But your donation could change everything.
You could help us support women and girls around the world:
ActionAid is on the ground delivering essential aid like food directly to local women and girls. But our supplies are running out – and thousands of women and girls can’t wait. Please donate today.
ActionAid is on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis helping to stop the spread and save lives as the pandemic hits the world's poorest countries.
Amid existing poverty and global inequality, vulnerable communities are already struggling with the consequences of several humanitarian emergencies. Now they face an unprecedented global emergency.
ActionAid is on-the-ground distributing life-saving advice, health information and hygiene kits to vulnerable people. We are also distributing food packages and essential supplies in countries where millions of families have no way of earning a living during lockdown.
Your donation could help provide life-saving aid for women and girls like Nafisa.
to help provide a cash transfer for a woman so she can buy life-saving food and medicine
to help provide an essentials kit with underwear, soap, wipes, batteries, comb, a whistle, and a torch
to help provide life-saving training on sanitation and hygiene practices, to prevent fatal diseases from spreading
Every donation counts, and we’re grateful for whatever you feel you can afford. A one-off donation is a fantastic start, but issues that women and girls face, like violence and poverty, are long-term problems, and they need long-term solutions. Regular donations mean we can commit to working with women and girls for as long as it takes.
A monthly gift from you allows us to make ambitious plans, and invest in the futures of young girls and their communities. It means we can make a real, sustainable difference to the lives of women and girls. Please help us to change lives, for good.
For every £1 we spend:
70p is spent on programme activity, including humanitarian and development work
17p is spent on fundraising
10p is spent on support costs (running the organisation)
3p is spent on campaigning for change
These figures are taken from our expenditure in 2018.
We’re committed to keeping our supporters happy and being open and honest about how we fundraise. To find out more you can read our supporter promise.
