ActionAid's response so far

As of May 2021, ActionAid has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic in 40 countries across Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East.

We have reached over 21 million people with our life-saving support: delivering food supplies, distributing essentials like soap and water, funding women’s shelters and combating the spread of misinformation with awareness-raising projects like local radio broadcasts.    

In India alone, we have reached over 6.8 million people with food support, sanitation and protection against gender-based violence.

In Nepal, we have reached more than 427,000 people, delivering thousands of Covid-19 prevention kits, handwashing supplies and PPE items, alongside food packages and menstrual products. 

Together, we’re making a huge difference to the lives of vulnerable people, but there’s so much more to do. If we act now, many more lives can be saved.
