We are all in this crisis together
The current pandemic reminds us that we are all one human family.
We must come together and build a global response that is founded on solidarity, human dignity and in the words of Pope Francis, “the creativity of love.”
The most vulnerable of our world will suffer the worst economic, social and human impacts of this pandemic.

The pandemic is intensifying the daily struggles of communities in the Global South by increasing poverty, hunger, climate change and political instability.
Development and Peace is commmitted to providing essential support to the poorest of our world thanks to our network of 150 local partner organizations.
Now more than ever, Development and Peace must continue its work supporting communities in taking action to build peace, justice and resilience.
Here are examples of how we are building a just world:
Building food sovereignty
By helping small family farmers build capacity in some of the poorest regions of the world, we are helping them face the impacts of climate change.
Supporting women leaders and women’s networks
By listening to the voices of women and girls, and ensuring they have access to resources and opportunities, we support women in becoming strong actors for change in their communities.
Protection of refugees, displaced persons and those living in conflict zones
Development and Peace works with its local partners to provide access to essential services to these vulnerable communities.
Development and Peace’s approach of partnering with respected local organizations over the long-term ensures a response that supports communities in overcoming the most devastating impacts of COVID-19. With your help we can support communities in strengthening their resilience and building justice in the face of this crisis.
Let’s respond in solidarity to the pandemic!
