ECG Participation with IMC for COVID-19

"Dear Reto,

Thank you for the Earth Council Geneva’s very generous July 2020 donation to support our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Your ongoing support helps International Medical Corps bring healthcare and hope to those who need it most during this challenging time.

As the number of cases continues to rise globally, International Medical Corps is focused on ensuring the continuity of our existing programming in nearly 30 countries while taking decisive action to respond to COVID-19 cases. We continue to distribute personal protective equipment (PPE) and infection prevention and control (IPC) items to healthcare facilities, while providing training and support to frontline healthcare workers on the proper use of such equipment and the epidemiology of COVID-19.

Our facilities continue to screen patients and raise awareness in local communities through traditional and remote activities. International Medical Corps is also participating with global, regional and local coordination bodies to support their COVID-19 response and ensure that our Staff can respond to the outbreak while continuing to deliver critical healthcare services.

I am deeply grateful for your continued generosity and commitment to our work. We will keep you updated on this crucial work and on how, together, we are saving lives and relieving suffering. Thank you.

All the best,

Nancy A. Aossey

IMC President & CEO"
