COVID-19: How TEAR and our international partners are responding.Read more
With your support the Australian Government can partner with global institutions, Australian NGOs and our regional neighbours, to address the worst impacts of COVID-19 on the world’s most vulnerable nations and communities.
We have some ideas around how to do this:
Start by protecting those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 and its impacts, strengthen health systems and protect essential aid programs, and help kick-start economic recovery in the region to secure a bright future for all.
Contribute our fair share of global humanitarian funding and increase support to crisis areas.
Prevent a second crisis of communicable disease outbreak – like malaria, ebola and polio – by increasing our investment in global health programs.
Fund equitable and timely access to a COVID-19 vaccine.
Provide testing kits, PPE, information campaigns, and medical equipment.
Ensure health care is made accessible and inclusive to people with disabilities and other marginalised groups.
Continue supporting ongoing health programs that are critical and cannot stop – including water projects, maternal and child health and sexual and reproductive health.
Lead the safe, staged resumption of regional economic ties including increased support for Pacific workers in Australia.
Provide low-cost loans for the Pacific to finance vital health infrastructure and kick-start economic recovery.
Secure an immediate halt on debt interest payments for developing countries.
The COVID crisis isn’t going to end for anyone, until it ends for everyone, so we’ve put together a guide to help you along the journey to help End COVID For All.
We hope you and your church use the tools and assets in this pack to help Australians show solidarity for our global neighbours who are ill-equipped to deal with this COVID-19 crisis. As Australians show they care, this will encourage the Australian Government to provide vital support to vulnerable nations.
COVID-19 has turned our lives upside down for months, and some of us have suffered greatly: lost loved ones, jobs, freedom of movement, and so much about our lives that we took for granted. But what about others?
In places of poverty, life is always vulnerable to the crisis - many people rely on daily wages to survive, and health systems are already inadequate. The pandemic has further multiplied this human suffering, and TEAR partners working in these contexts are facing huge challenges.
Join us online as we gather to pray for one another, for TEAR’s partners, and for the people they serve.
