Project Details


Our world is facing unprecedented times… and in the face of these challenges, Baptist World Aid is acting urgently, and on a larger scale than ever before.

Will you give your most important gift ever to stop preventable deaths and stop the rapid spread of coronavirus (COVID-19)?

As an Australian, you are doing all that’s within your power to stop the spread of coronavirus… from regularly washing your hands, to seeing your doctor about worrying symptoms, to keeping your distance from those most at risk.

But what if you didn’t have these options?

What if your community had no clean water… and no soap? What if the nearest doctor was hours away? And what if you and your family of five lived in a refugee camp so overcrowded, that it makes social distancing – of any kind – completely out of the question?

Your most important gift ever is required to save vulnerable lives and to stop preventable coronavirus deaths during this global emergency.


Your most important gift ever will help fund an urgent coronavirus emergency response in Lebanon, on the Syrian border. That means, when you give to the COVID-19 Global Emergency Appeal, your generosity is work in a region which is crowded with more than 300,000 vulnerable refugees… living in closely confined quarters.

Due to conflict and violence, these Syrian refugee families are already under great stress. But your generous gift will help to provide five health clinics with extra medical equipment and staff, as well as protective equipment for frontline workers… so they can continue to protect vulnerable refugee families from coronavirus throughout this crisis. Thank you!

Your most important gift ever also means our existing Christian partners can receive small grants to help with the following:

- Materials to tell children, women, and men living in poverty about the great importance of thoroughly washing their hands… to keep them safe from coronavirus.

- Water and water sources for communities who currently have none… so they can their hands stay clean from germs.

- And protective equipment so that frontline workers can keep safe from coronavirus and caring for those who are sick.
