The aim of the panel is to look at the individual and collective experiences and contributions of governments, civil society, religious and secular actors to address the pandemic, with a special focus on the role played by faith-based humanitarian organizations. We are hoping to address challenges, opportunities, best practices, as well as lessons learned with a look to the future and the post-pandemic efforts.
We will explore the following questions:
- How engagement with faith-based humanitarian organizations can help fight COVID-19 and limit contagion?
- In which ways has Covid-19 had an impact on humanitarian organizations and their ability to deliver their projects?
- What lessons learned? What role will humanitarian organization play in the post-pandemic efforts?
