Ways to Help with COVID-19 – International Initiatives

If you want to help with the current crisis, you’re in the right place! I’ve tried to compile as many international organisations and initiatives as I could find.

Use Control+F, or Command+F to search for keywords (e.g “food” or “design”). And I’ve organised these initiatives by countries, so you can jump straight away to what you like:

  1. Worldwide

  2. USA

  3. UK

If you know of any others that aren’t listed here, please use the button below to add them! I’ll be doing research and checking submissions to add more ideas regularly. So check back to see if there’s anything new and interesting.
