Love Beyond Borders: Interfaith Movement to End the Pandemic
The Advance Global Ministries | The United Methodist Church
The Love Beyond Borders campaign aims to raise funds for the equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines around the world. The initiative has emerged from First United Methodist Church, Boise, ID and seeks to engage The United Methodist Church in supporting COVAX alongside UNICEF, the key vaccine delivery partner.
All funds raised will be sent to UNICEF for this project.
The coronavirus pandemic continues to have severe consequences, especially on the poorest and most vulnerable populations. Accelerating the rate at which all people are vaccinated is the key to ending the pandemic and reducing harm.
According to research from Northeastern University, 61% of deaths globally could be averted if an effective vaccine were distributed to all countries proportional to their populations. While many wealthy countries have made significant inroads into vaccinating their citizens, this is not the case in less-developed countries.
Worldwide Vaccine Distribution
The Love Beyond Borders campaign will support COVAX’s initiative to equitably distribute vaccines around the world. This grassroots campaign aims to engage The United Methodist Church in working to stop the spread of COVID-19 through immunizations.
The goal of this project is to assist COVAX and UNICEF in equitably distributing the COVID-19 vaccine around the world to end the pandemic.
With the COVID-19 vaccine distributed around the world, lives will be saved, the pandemic will end and communities can enter into post-pandemic life.
