The DEC Coronavirus Appeal, launched earlier this year, seeks to help the most vulnerable and marginalised communities around the world – many of whom are trying to deal with Covid-19 on top of conflict, natural disaster, poverty and malnutrition.
Our Isle of Man street appeal raised over £2,000 which went directly to the DEC to support the work they are doing. Overall the appeal has now raised some £27m but it remains open as countries struggle to contain the virus. You can read regular updates from the DEC here
