Story

I'm sure, like me, you are hugely grateful that your loved ones will be receiving the COVID vaccine soon. Some already may have had it. What is sure, is that by the end of the year, everyone in the UK will have been offered this potentially life saving treatment, so that we can go back to doing the things we love.

Tragically, this is not true for millions of people in the world.

It is estimated that only 10% of people in low-income countries will receive the vaccine this year. Many will have to wait until 2024.

The inequality in our world is desperate, but there are things we can do.

The Astra-Zeneca vaccine costs between £5 and £10 for two doses. Would you consider donating this much to enable someone, somewhere else in the world, to have the vaccine? You might like to donate this once your own vaccine letter comes through, or even in the knowledge that you'll be getting it soon. It could also be a gesture of thanks for a loved-ones' treatment.

'Gavi', the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization , was set up in 2000, for the purpose of vaccinating people in low and middle income countries. In response to the pandemic Gavi is now co leader of COVAX; a program specifically created for the development and manufacture of COVID vaccines, and to guarantee fair access of these vaccines across the world.

The money raised on this page will be given to Gavi for the COVAX roll-out.

My desire is that as those who are privileged enough to receive the COVID-19 vaccine so soon, we will be able to enable many more people to receive theirs.

Thank you, for your help.
