Corona crisis: solidarity with the South right now!

Dear PartnerAid friends

 

The coronavirus is currently worrying us all, spreading disease, suffering, death and economic hardship all over the world – even in the South, where currently the infections are still less widespread. This is likely to change in the near future.  The crisis will have a particularly devastating effect , especially in our project areas in Africa, but also in Asia and the Balkans, where people were often living below the poverty line and suffering privations before.  In the usually cramped living conditions, keeping a safe distance and washing hands is impossible because there is not enough water. There are hardly any functioning health systems. When there is no more work, families go hungry. Now the poorest people in the South need our solidarity more than ever, let’s not forget them in this dramatic situation.
