People For People Fund

Host Organization: Thousand Currentsmdi-circle-small Oakland,, CA, United States mdi-circle-small


Across the Global South, we are hearing devastating stories of systemic failure as communities are ripped apart by alarmingly high COVID-19 infection and death rates. From the Philippines to Brazil to South Africa, our grassroots partners are rapidly organizing community relief efforts and building readiness in response to this moment.

They need our help. They are in dire need of:

Oxygen tanks
Drinking water
Food items
Masks and soap
Transportation for testing and treatment
Cash for cremations and funerals
Long-term wellness support

Thousand Currents is responding to the call of our community with the People for People Fund. This fund will both provide emergency relief AND bring continuous support to our grassroots groups and movement partners—who will be dealing with COVID-19’s impact long after Global North vaccinations are complete. While many of us start to see the light, we have to make sure it’s bright enough for everyone.
