100% of iACT’s proceeds will support the COVID-19 refugee response in Chad, Cameroon, Tanzania, and Greece—serving refugees from Darfur, Central African Republic, Burundi, Syria, Congo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Kurdistan, Chad, and Cameroon. In each of these refugee contexts, iACT is one of the few organizations working to stop the spread of the Coronavirus.
iACT works directly with refugee leaders across the world in preparing their communities for the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the temporary suspension of iACT’s education, sports, and human rights programs, all of iACT’s teachers, coaches, cooks, and coordinators have now become public health leaders on the frontlines of preparing their communities for the Coronavirus. Funds raised will support essential health and hygiene materials (soap, water buckets, etc.) and the dissemination of life-saving information (printing, phone credit, etc.).
