The African Union has created an African Union COVID-19 Response Fund with the aim of strengthening the continental response to COVID-19 and mitigate its socio economic and humanitarian impact on African populations. The fund was established by the Chairperson of the African Union Commission Mr Moussa Faki Mahamat on 26 March 2020.
This Africa Day, 25 May, all Africans, people of African descent and friends of Africa are encouraged to “give a little” to the fund.
A target of USD $1 million has been set for the day. Contributions can be made in any currency and this will be automatically converted into United States dollars, which is the original currency of the Fund account.
Donations can be made at https://au.int/en/AUCOVID19ResponseFund.
