Support U.S. troops and their mission to stop the spread of Coronavirus
America’s men and women remain deployed in combat zones, security and stability operations, and embassies around the world, remaining steadfast in their missions even as the globe is gripped by coronavirus. During this unprecedented crisis, Spirit of America is being asked by our US military and diplomatic partners to help them respond to urgent coronavirus-related needs.
In every theater around the world — Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East — our US Government partners are identifying critical local needs: personal protective equipment, thermometers, 3D printers, basic hygiene products. Spirit of America is providing locally sourced materials and supplies. Some of the initiatives you can support directly today:
No other organization can move as quickly as Spirit of America to help US military and diplomatic partners respond to urgent coronavirus-related needs.
These projects are important for two reasons:
- They help prevent the transmission of coronavirus among vulnerable populations that are particularly susceptible to the disease and lack any response capability.
- They reduce the health risks to US troops and diplomats, and America’s local partners.
The value of these projects isn’t limited to their short-term impacts combating coronavirus. Demonstrating solidarity with and steadfast support for our friends, partners, and allies is crucial to preserving American leadership and influence during — and after — times of global crisis. Our allies are counting on America to stand with them in their time of greatest need, while our competitors seek to exploit any gaps that arise and thereby degrade the friendships, partnerships, and alliances upon which the US-led international order depends. With YOUR support, we will provide exactly what US troops and diplomats need to succeed.
It’s easy to feel helpless at times like these. Our staff and our military and diplomatic partners are standing by, ready to execute on these activities. Together we can make a difference!
