Here in the UK, we have all made unprecedented sacrifices to protect each other and save lives. And we have witnessed the tireless dedication of staff in our amazing NHS.

Elsewhere, millions of lives are at stake as Covid-19 hits refugee camps and communities affected by conflict and violence in places such as Yemen, Syria and South Sudan. In countries where there is no NHS; refugees and families who are trying to protect themselves from violence and hunger, need our help.

Please take a moment to imagine that you have lost your home, your livelihood, fled your country in order to protect your family, and now you face a deadly new threat. These places do not have sufficient supplies to treat those who fall ill, little access to clean water and PPE to protect medical staff is scarce.

Densely populated refugee camps like the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh are one and a half times more densely populated than New York City — social distancing is impossible.

When large-scale disasters hit countries without the capacity to respond, the Disasters Emergency Committee brings together 14 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently. Their mission is to save, protect, and rebuild lives through effective humanitarian response.

As we have seen in the UK, simple measures can make a huge difference. If we act now to protect millions of vulnerable refugees and displaced people, many lives can be saved.
