LWF responds to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic

Updates, resource, and information on how to support the LWF‘s efforts to reduce its impact

During the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak the LWF is making information and resources available, and offering encouragement to its member churches.

This is a time to show solidarity with one another, to practice love and self-discipline, to hold back from unnecessary physical contact yet remain connected in different ways. Through that we are able to show our love and concern for those who are most vulnerable.

Where can I find reliable information?

We advise you to follow instructions from the public health structures of your countries and to follow the World Health Organization that is coordinating the global response to the outbreak. Follow its website for detailed information and advice. You can also help by sharing reliable information online to halt the spread of misinformation.

What can I do?

  • Follow the advice of local and global health authorities.
  • Pray for each other, particularly for the countries and churches who are currently at epicenter of the spread of the virus.
  • If you are able, consider donating to support the work of LWF World Service and the LWF member churches to halt the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and reduce its impact on those who are most vulnerable.
