The Methodist Relief and Development charity has launched an Emergency Coronavirus Appeal in support of its work with partners in areas especially affected by Covid-19, ie places without access to running water or soap & where social distancing is an impossibility. This is true, for example,
- among the Rohingya refugees in camps in Cox’s Bazaar in Bangladesh,
- for internally-displaced families in Cameroon,
- for families unable now to access food in markets in Uganda because of the current banning of public transport.
