The Drop: A weekly update from charity: water during the coronavirus pandemic.
Bring relief to the frontlines of COVID-19
Our local partners are working tirelessly to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the regions they serve. They are urgently implementing handwashing stations, teaching social distancing, distributing soap, translating educational posters into local languages, and so much more—all to equip as many people as possible with the resources they need to stay healthy.

To empower this lifesaving work, we’re launching a COVID-19 Relief Fund to support our local partners on the frontlines.


DONATE

Without strong healthcare systems to rely on, prevention is absolutely critical to protecting vulnerable people in developing countries from the coronavirus pandemic. 100% of your donation to our COVID-19 Relief Fund will help our local partners deliver lifesaving water, sanitation, and hygiene resources to communities in need.

DISPATCHES FROM THE FIELD

This week, Water Programs Manager Michaela Walsh shares how one of our local partners in Malawi is equipping healthcare workers and local communities with the information they need to stay safe from coronavirus.
“Our partner United Purpose is carrying out prevention activities throughout Dowa District in Central Malawi. They are training health workers on COVID-19 prevention, approaches for circulating key hygiene messages in communities, and spreading awareness through local radio programs and mobile public address systems—formats that can reach many people while following social distancing guidelines.”

NEXT STOP: ETHIOPIA

Last week, we went on a trip to Cambodia for the first season of The Journey. This week, we’re heading to Ethiopia to learn how drilled wells are bringing clean water to families in need. A matching game, dance party, worksheets, coloring pages, and more are all waiting for you in our Season Two Resources.

IN CLOSING, A LITTLE GOOD NEWS

Mechanics at the Relief Society of Tigray (REST), our local partner in Tigray, Ethiopia, have now been classified as “frontline workers.” In addition to their regular work, the government has requested their support to help repair non-charity: water projects in high-demand areas. These incredible mechanics aren’t just providing repairs; they’re also training local communities on social distancing and proper handwashing—a service that requires great sacrifice. They are fully isolated from their families in an effort to continue this important work while keeping everyone as safe and healthy as possible.
