Dear friends,

At the heart of the current Covid-19 pandemic which affects the whole world, the entire Fidesco team is mobilized to serve the most vulnerable populations, while remaining very vigilant for the volunteers.

In close collaboration with the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the other international voluntary organizations, and each of the volunteers, we are working collectively and individually with the French authorities to deal with this epidemic.

In this exceptional crisis, the presence of volunteers among the most deprived populations takes on a particular meaning. Beyond this exceptional crisis, needs on the ground are not weakening, quite the contrary.

This is why we need everyone to continue the mission: those who will take over once the crisis has passed, and those who support us from Europe. More than ever, our world needs goodwill, let's act together now!

In this period of confinement linked to the global COVID-19 epidemic, all Fidesco employees remain mobilized in the service of volunteers in the field, and of people who are wondering if leaving on a mission is something for them. Here are some answers to the questions you may be asking yourself. Please read our Post below for more details.
