Rogers, Arkansas
Walmart and the Walmart Foundation announced a $25-million commitment recently to support organisations on the frontlines responding to COVID-19. The money will be distributed in a series of grants, each furthering the capacity of organisations to help communities affected by the pandemic.

The Walmart Foundation announced a $5 million grant to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, a programme set up by the United Nations Foundation to support the World Health Organization (WHO) in the global effort to help countries prevent, detect and respond to the novel coronavirus.

The fund will enable WHO to:

Send essential supplies such as personal protective equipment to frontline health workers
Enable all countries to track and detect the disease by boosting laboratory capacity through training and equipment
Ensure health workers and communities everywhere have access to the latest science-based information to protect themselves, prevent infection and care for those in need
Accelerate efforts to fast-track the discovery and development of lifesaving vaccines, diagnostics and treatments

The $5 million grant to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund is a part of the $25 million commitment announced recently by Walmart and the Walmart Foundation. This piece will update as additional grants are announced, detailing the amount and the organisations supported.
