IDWF Solidarity Fund to Fight COVID-19

by IDWFED published Apr 30, 2020 11:27 PM



Based on our rapid assessment, we set up a Solidarity Fund of 2 million USD to support our affiliates
to address some of the most critical needs –basic livelihood and medical care. 

The objective is to enable at least 150,000 domestic workers and their families to cope and survive with COVID-19. 

Donate and Support our Solidarity Fund, keep us safe.

Together we will be strong >>>   



The actions being proposed to be implemented within the next two weeks are:

  • To provide food, protective gear, hygienic products, and emergency cash assistance to domestic workers in need.
  • To provide information, through needs assessments, to amplify the demands of domestic workers under COVID-19.
  • To support the operations of the unions offices and the sustenance of the advocacy and relief work they conduct.  
  •  To support shelters (for a maximum of three months) for migrant domestic workers who have lost their accommodation or need to quarantine;

The IDWF is already giving out grants in the sum of 5,000 to 10,000 USD for its affiliates working on rapid relief all over the globe.

Every contribution counts to support the urgent needs of domestic workers everywhere.
Every contribution counts to fight the systemic labor and gender inequalities.
