COVID Response

We know you’re getting a lot of information about the COVID-19 pandemic, we too are monitoring the latest news and feeling the unfamiliar pangs of helplessness. These are uncharted waters, to be sure.

While none of us can answer all the questions that linger about what’s happening right now, we want to update you on the work of International Justice Mission and what we are doing.

First, the staff of IJM around the globe are continuing its operations where our teams are able to do so, continuing to fight on behalf of those who need it most. People in poverty are the most vulnerable in situations like this, so – responsibly, but relentlessly - we continue to work for them.

Second, IJM has a COVID-19 task force that has been monitoring the situation in coordination with local leadership and government officials on the ground in all the communities that we serve around the world. We are following the guidance issued by the World Health Organization and local health experts, doing everything we can to support the well-being of the clients and staff.

Currently IJM UK staff are working from home, however, know that we are working as hard as ever as we continue to pursue justice – and we are available on phone or email to all who want to connect about how you can fight for justice with us in this difficult time. (You can contact us here.) Owing to not being in the office, we will be slightly slower in processing postal mail and would be really grateful if as many people as possible could donate online rather than send a cheque at this time. Thank you so much for enabling IJM’s work to stop slavery and violence to continue at a time when the need is greater than ever.

As we sit together in this uncertain season, not knowing what the days and weeks will be like, we hope that we all feel a special empathy for the most vulnerable in the world for whom unspeakable helplessness is a familiar feeling. Yet we know that they are not hopeless, because you and the entire IJM community will not quit.

We will continue to do everything in our power to fight for freedom, to bring light into the darkest places and to make justice unstoppable. Thank you for standing with us.

Hoping and praying that you and your community stay safe and well,

The IJM UK team
