Vulnerable communities, families and children will disproportionately suffer from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. There is a great urgency for us to respond to support children and families around the world who are making life or death decisions because of the pandemic.

With a significant shortage of hospital beds, medical staff, personal protective equipment and intensive care facilities, most countries are not ready to deal with a major pandemic. In Somalia, before the coronavirus hit, it cost just $2 for a pack of protective face masks. Now the same pack costs $50. Doctors, nurses and other frontline staff in SOS hospitals and clinics cannot afford to protect themselves from the virus when they treat those affected. 

   If I can’t afford water, how should I apply hand hygiene? When I am crammed in the slums, how should I isolate myself and keep my distance? I can't see corona. But I can feel hunger. And if I have to choose between bread and soap, I choose bread.
