COVID-19 Pandemic Response

COVID-19 Pandemic Response

Episcopal Relief & Development staff are in regular contact with partners around the world and in the United States to provide technical expertise and financial assistance in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Episcopal Relief & Development staff are supporting partners around the world and in the United States in response to needs created by the COVID-19 Pandemic. The organization is providing technical expertise and tools to assist as partners adjust programming with necessary physical distancing and enhanced sanitation protocols in order to keep program staff, volunteers and beneficiaries safe. Episcopal Relief & Development is also providing emergency assistance such as food, medical supplies, personal protective equipment (PPE) and sanitation kits.


The US Disaster Program has created a number of resources, including webinars, toolkits and Bible Studies, to support dioceses in a faith-based response to epidemics and pandemics.


As of March 2021, Episcopal Relief & Development has reached over 1 million people in 40 countries and 15 Episcopal Dioceses with personal protective equipment, educational messaging about COVID-19, meals and more.
