WHAT’S NEW

UAF A&P is taking a week of Pause - 24-28 May 2021

Submitted by on Tue, 05/18/2021 - 06:33

We hope you are safe and healthy, and coping well with the difficult times we find ourselves in.

Since 2020, UAF A&P team members too have been functioning amid repeated lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with some countries, such as India, Nepal and Papua New Guinea more severely affected than others. As you probably are aware, we have several staff members working out of these countries, while others have been steadily facilitating grants or raising resources for the different needs mentioned by activists and defenders across Asia and the Pacific.

The Urgent Action Fund Asia and Pacific expresses its solidarity with India and Papua New Guinea, experiencing the deadly impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We join the international community that is currently mobilising resources and supporting communities of women and non-binary human rights defenders, as they battle the current waves of COVID-19.

The UAF Sister Funds are deeply saddened by the news that our Sister, Tatiana Cordero Velásquez, the Executive Director of Urgent Action Fund - Latin America & Caribbean, has passed away due to complications while undergoing medical treatment. She brought a deep spirituality to her lifelong work as a feminist activist, scholar, mother, and leader of Urgent Action Fund-LAC. Tatiana’s legacy for feminist movements and funders across the globe is profound and will continue to shape our analysis and action.
