COVID–19 Emergency Responses
The COVID–19 pandemic has presented challenges that have never been faced before. Most disasters happen over a small area and enable the sharing of resources and expertise, but the 2020 coronavirus crisis has affected almost every part of the world simultaneously.
The Salvation Army, which is at work in 131 countries, has strong links in a number of other nations. Its worldwide response has been made possible by having local Salvationists, staff, and volunteers available to react quickly to the greatest needs—often funded by generous donors and through international contacts. This map shows the geographic scale of the response and demonstrates the huge outlay of resources that will have to be replenished over the coming months and years.
