Girls in crisis need your support to stay safe during this pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented and wide-reaching hardship across the world. Girls living in the least developed countries in the world are in crisis, because of COVID-19’s direct consequences and further negative impacts.

Plan International is working to stop this setback COVID-19 is causing for vulnerable people worldwide, and directly helping 20 million people – especially girls and young women – across more than 50 countries. This past year, Plan International’s work reached more than 73 million people thanks to our donors. But six months of COVID-19’s effects can undo up to 20 years of development work. With the current global crisis, these communities need our help more than ever before.
