In just a few weeks, Covid-19 has now spread across 190 countries, a major crisis that has already had a huge impact on the world’s economy. This has had an oversized effect on the communities we serve and on our finances as an organization. Many of our programs are located in lower-income countries and are the most vulnerable populations to such health and economic shocks. As we rely exclusively on your generosity to create change through music and the arts, we created this emergency fund in order to raise money that will be dedicated to help balance the devastation of the Covid-19 pandemic across PFCF communities internationally.
Please donate to this fund and help us provide our PFCF family members internationally basic medical resources that could save lives
Across Africa, community members across our 5 programs could face tremendous risk due to the lack of local and state medical resources. Many of these programs are in remote geographic areas, which may cause serious delays in providing necessary resources upon drastic spread of Covid-19. Taking proactive measures now could make all the difference.
In Asia, the metropolitan area of Dhaka, Bangladesh where the Mirpur Music Program is located has one of the highest population densities in the world. Social distancing has become extremely difficult, especially in poorer communities like Dhaka where our programs operate. There is a desperate need for masks and gloves.
