How Cuso International is responding to COVID-19

Dear friends and supporters,

Cuso International’s programs are servicing those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 on a global scale.

As countries around the world combat the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Cuso is working to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, partners, and beneficiaries.

This pandemic is especially devastating to our most vulnerable communities – most of whom are without the basic health care and day-to-day resources you and I have available.

In light of the increased risk of countries imposing travelling restrictions, Cuso made the decision to accelerate the return of all volunteers. Our teams across the globe have worked tirelessly these last few days to support measures to reduce the risk of proliferation of COVID-19. Staff and volunteers are working from home, and we are doing all we can to ensure these new working arrangements have minimal impact on our operations.

We are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and its potential impact on the Cuso community. As the situation evolves, we will continue to provide further updates on our response. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. Thank you for your continued support of people living in poverty.

We wish you, your family and friends, safety and good health in these difficult times.
