'Join the call for debt relief during the coronavirus crisis:

G20 Leaders, the IMF and World Bank:

"We are deeply concerned that the world’s poorest countries won’t have the resources to contain the coronavirus. We call on you to save lives by agreeing to forgive their debt, starting with an immediate suspension of debt payments. We also urge you to provide additional funding so all governments can spend money fast to contain the virus, boost their healthcare systems, and ensure people can afford to stay at home."']
