As the pandemic spreads, workers and communities in the Global South are taking action to not only stop the spread, but also to prepare for a post-pandemic world where the rights to healthcare, education, and good jobs are strengthened.
In the coming days and weeks, Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA will be assessing how it can best support our partner organisations overcome the crisis. Because already, they are in the thick of defending workers and communities.
