To protect the vulnerable populations we support on a daily basis, our teams are doing everything possible to provide an emergency response to the Coronavirus crisis. Each week, follow the evolution of our activities in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Here is an update on our various interventions as of 25 April 2020.

Wherever possible, Aide et Action mobilizes all its human and material resources to develop its projects for the most vulnerable populations. Educating communities on prevention measures and providing them with basic support is our priority. In addition to the activities detailed in our special folderHere are the latest developments:


In IndiaWith the launch of the new iDream distance learning application, our teams have launched a new distance learning application called iDream. It is designed to provide uninterrupted access to comprehensive and relevant learning content, enabling the holistic development of young people and the improvement of their academic and cognitive skills. By offering a range of learning modules not only in Hindi and English, but also in other local languages, including Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali and Oriya, it provides educational continuity even for ethnic minority children.
In the state of Assam, since the New Year celebrations could not take place due to the COVID-19 crisis, Aide et Action decided to take advantage of the situation by encouraging the production of masks using the fabric initially ordered for the festivities. This was a successful initiative, which was taken up in other forms by the trainees of our iLEAD vocational training programme. Thousands of alternative protective masks can be produced in this way.
In addition, the support of our teams to migrant workers is still ongoing via food supply and the defence of their basic rights before the authorities.


Our projects in Vietnam, and the Laos: are still suspended due to strict containment measures. In both countries, our teams are gathering information on community needs in order to provide appropriate responses to the crisis. In the meantime, we have started to provide emergency supplies, such as soap and disinfectant, to local authorities in Laos and to marginalised children in Vietnam.

In Cambodia:Hand washing stations are still being installed in remote villages and food distribution activities continue to reach the most vulnerable families. Distance e-learning is also being implemented in order to improve early childhood care and strengthen inclusive education. In the same vein, Aide et Action will support an initiative, in partnership with UNICEF and Save The Children, to provide education to marginalized groups.


In all our countries of intervention, Aide et Action participates in the global response of the States to fight against the virus. This is mainly done at the awareness level, but also at the material level with the possibility of distributing hygiene kits or building hand washing stations in schools.


A campaign of  emergency collection has been set up to support our activities on the ground.
