Coping with COVID-19: The Impact on the Extreme Poor

This piece draws on a series of case studies from four countries where Concern Worldwide works: Bangladesh, Malawi, Somalia and Sierra Leone. The report itself focuses on the secondary impact of Covid-19 and the in-country response on people’s livelihoods, their access to food and water, changes in prices, and their access to health care and children’s access to education. It also looks at how people are coping and how they have engaged with formal support programmes that have been provided.
