Cancel the Debt Campaign

Call for action to support the most vulnerable during the coronavirus pandemic

We have all been affected in some way by the devastating impact of coronavirus.

As the pandemic has spread in many of the poorest countries, our neighbours around the world have been hit even harder, often without the safety nets we’ve seen at home.

For example, Burkina Faso has only 19 ventilators for a population of 11 million.

The most vulnerable have been falling ill, and the economic impacts have left people who were already struggling without a way to feed their families and survive this crisis. 

Debt re-payments are taking away resources that are vital for coping with the health, social and economic crises resulting from the pandemic. We need rich nations, private creditors and multilateral bodies to cancel the debt of the world’s poorest countries.
