COVID-19 Solidarity Fund

COVID-19 Solidarity Fund


In every context, Friends are especially attentive to the needs of the most vulnerable people in our communities. Among FUM’s ministries around the world, immediate needs are becoming clearer as the Coronavirus impacts lives and livelihoods. In order to allow Friends to support this solidarity work, FUM has created a new special fund. (Read the announcement from 18 March 2020 by clicking here.)


Right now (19 March 2020) we are aware of the immediate need for food assistance in Belize and Samburu. As other needs become known, we will share about them.

Thank you for standing together in solidarity within your local community, and also as a global fellowship. May Christ be more fully known through the love of Friends for those in need.
