Fund COVID-19 aid shipments

There is a significant shortage of COVID-19 related relief items. Currently, the Flexport.org Fund exclusively focuses on supporting the sourcing and transport of supplies related to the coronavirus pandemic. By helping to cover the logistics costs, you’re enabling supplies worth thousands of dollars to reach people in need.

Providing aid related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

On March 11th 2020, the World Health organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. Flexport.org works with nonprofits, government agencies and companies around the world to get urgently needed supplies such as personal protective equipment and hygiene items to communities in need.

For example, we work with Distribute Aid, a nonprofit connecting refugee aid groups. The emergencies in Europe are intensifying and many refugees don’t have access to running water or soap. Distribute Aid needs funding for multiple trucking shipments of essential products like hygiene and cleaning supplies as well as clothes that will be sent to Greece, Serbia and Italy.

Every Dollar Counts

Even if you aren’t able to fund a full cargo move but want to contribute in some way, we will direct your funds towards a shipment targeted for good.

Donate what you can; any dollar amount helps to 1) empower organizations to respond as quickly as possible and 2) provide sustained support after the disaster to enable successful recovery.

Quality health care for some of the poorest people in the world

Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world. It is estimated that 60% of its population live below the national poverty line.
Our nonprofit partner works hand-in-hand with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation in Sierra Leone, helping to bring health care to some of the poorest communities. Through their work, supplies and training are provided to government-run health centers and the public Koidu Government Hospital. Partners in Health needs funding to ship 1 container of medical and office equipment (such as lab drawing and infusion chairs) sent from the U.S. to Sierra Leone.

Flexport.org is directly involved in humanitarian aid responses with a dedicated team. Once we collect enough donations to cover the costs of transportation for a humanitarian aid project (e.g. one container or one trucking shipment), we will work with our nonprofit partners to schedule the shipment. Please be advised that the context of responses might change and the described projects might be modified or cancelled. In that case, your donation will be used for other aid related shipments that 1) empower organizations to respond to crises as quickly as possible or 2) provide sustained support after the disaster to enable successful recovery. All donations to the Flexport.org Fund are managed by CAF America.
