As the world faces the outbreak of the Coronavirus and the implications of this global pandemic, you may be wondering how COVID-19 is affecting Life In Abundance’s work and the poor and vulnerable communities we serve in Africa and the Caribbean.
LIA currently works in more than 56 disadvantaged communities in 14 countries. All these countries are currently being impacted by the virus. We recognize the severity of this for the urban and rural poor we walk with, many of whom live in crowded areas, rely on daily income, have pre-existing medical conditions (such as malaria, tuberculosis, HIV and AIDS, and malnutrition), and have less access to proper healthcare and education. COVID-19’s spread in these communities could be devastating.
