More than a year after the World Health Organization classified the coronavirus outbreak as a global health emergency, on May 2, 2021, it was reported that the average for new cases of COVID-19 worldwide was higher than any other time during the pandemic.  Although vaccines have been released in many countries, new cases have skyrocketed making scenes in countries like India, Brazil, Turkey, and Iran, catastrophic.  
 
At issue are economic constraints, inadequate supply of testing kits and vaccines, lack of infrastructure and insufficient, qualified medical personnel to administer vaccinations, among others.  Adding to the challenge are new, deadlier variants of the virus that are difficult to contain and treat.   
 
We encourage donor support of the highly-rated nonprofits presented on this page. These organizations have created funds to support communities in the U.S. and around the world affected by the outbreak.
