FOR EVERY CHILD, PROTECTION FROM COVID-19

#EndThePandemic

We will always remember 2020 for the challenges COVID-19 threw our way and how it threatened to derail our hard-won gains in creating a healthier, safer, more hopeful and equitable future for children everywhere.

Following the onset of COVID-19, we swiftly mobilised our resources to reduce transmission of the virus and ensure the continuity of life-saving services globally and in Malaysia.

HELPING FAMILIES ON THE EDGE NAVIGATE COVID-19

In just one year, the COVID-19 pandemic widened the gap between children and their families who have access to critical services and support, and those who don’t.

Because of you, we were able to help people like Rosmawati Muhammad Yusof, a single mother of three, and Mohd Sarji Ramli, who lives with debilitating rheumatoid arthritis and whose wife recently suffered a stroke.

The COVID-19 pandemic left both families and many more like theirs struggling to make ends meet. 

These are their stories
