COVID-19 pandemic has wrecked havoc across the world. It is extremely important to be vigilant and to protect the most vulnerable in these times. Identifying the urgent need of the masks, sanitizers, and the need to generate awareness amongst the people regarding COVID-19, End Poverty has been involved in COVID-response activities in its operational areas, through our on-ground staff and volunteers.
