HIGGS supports COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO through the Transnational Giving Europe Network

The World Health Organization is leading and coordinating the global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the growing COVID-19 outbreak. The greatest need right now is to help the most vulnerable people in countries with the weakest health systems.

The WHO launched the first and only pooled fund for individuals, businesses, and organizations to contribute to the global COVID-19 response. The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund will bolster global efforts to prevent, detect, and respond to the growing novel coronavirus outbreak.

To expand the global network of donors WHO partnered with two charitable foundations: The United Nations Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation. These two foundations will receive donated funds, which will then be used by the World Health Organization and partners to support countries according to the COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan. Through a partnership with the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, part of the Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) network, donors located in Europe and Canada may be able to give via wire transfer.

HIGGS is the corresponding TGE Network partner in Greece and accepts TGE donations from Greek donors for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO. To support this cause with tax-deductible donations, please contact us: [email protected]

Donations support work to track and understand the spread of the virus, to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers to get essential supplies and information, and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests and treatments.
