When COVID-19 was declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020, disastrous consequences were feared for refugees residing in overcrowded camps. These living quarters make social distancing impossible, in addition to low or non-availability of basic items to maintain sanitization and personal protection. However, agencies acted quickly and redirected their emergency programming to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Owing to the dedicated service of frontline workers, medical teams, volunteers, and refugees themselves, hundreds of thousands of lives were saved.
