Africa Foundation COVID-19 Campaign

Building the resilience of 73 rural communities across 6 countries in Africa


COVID-19 arrived in Africa in late February and its effects have been felt throughout the continent

For Africa Foundation (AF), this crisis necessitated a new set of priorities to build the resilience of the vulnerable rural communities neighbouring our lodges, and the AF COVID-19 Campaign was created comprising four areas of focus:

  • Clinic Support
  • Water Access
  • Food Assistance
  • Business Support

Many of these are short to medium term initiatives outside Africa Foundation’s standard focus, in which they are working with other stakeholders and existing foodbanks.

What has been raised to date?

USD 158,169
