In response to the continuing spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States and the globe, OpenWorld Relief is utilizing its network, experience, and logistical partnerships to participate in the response in several key locations. We have selected these project sites and will continue to add sites based on the viral impact, community impact, feasibility, and financial capability.
Through this process and projects we seek to meet immediate needs of the community now while developing projects that will have a lasting impact moving forward. OpenWorld Relief has focused on three core project types to fulfill these goals including; Food Scarcity, Personal Protective Equipment, and Community Resource Access. All of these project categories have been developed for implementation at the community level with local stakeholders, makers, and volunteers in order to best suit the communities needs directly. Additionally, during development and expansion we have focused a team to ensure that the foundational elements are effective, efficient, scaleable, and sustainable with the purpose being simplicity to expand them to other communities throughout the OpenWorld and Partner networks throughout the United States and Caribbean.
