During the first six months of 2020, SOS initiated a huge COVID-19 response with over $1,000,000 worth of supplies donated regionally. At the same time, our International Donation Program has set a record with 10 humanitarian shipments to countries in need so far this year.
While the U.S. has reached a plateau in new cases of COVID-19, countries throughout Africa remain wary of an explosion of cases. Our shipments have addressed this need by preparing facilities with the necessary tools.
SOS is prohibited from shipping personal protection supplies, but we are still able to provide oxygen, lab and surgical supplies to medical staff which allows them to treat patients and their mix of symptoms.
