COVID-19 is impacting almost every country in the world and causing extreme hardship and suffering for many. Many organizations are working to provide humanitarian aid such as food, water, protective equipment, and medicines to people most at risk. These are a few of the organizations we love who are responding to the COVID-19 crisis. Consider showing them some love with a donation.
