CRS COVID-19 Emergency Response Strategy
This emergency strategy provides an overview of CRS’ response to the pandemic that threatens the health and survival of people around the globe, as well as our economies and societies. CRS teams and our local and national partners across the world are working to expand and adapt programming to prevent the spread and reduce the risk of COVID‑19 in some of the most vulnerable communities. Our goal is to help people survive with dignity and restore their lives and communities. This strategy prioritizes several key areas to inform country‑specific programmatic actions to help families, communities and countries in the immediate response to the COVID‑19 pandemic over the next six months. It also lays a foundation for coordinated and effective programming as the crisis evolves, and leverages the unique strengths of CRS and our partner network.
