In summary, this project to build maps showing Covid-19 UK cases and good causes has been 80% accomplished. Our goal is to make these maps to help build hope and show the UK public most of the extraordinarily amazing work on the ground, has largely been achieved by our fantastic team of unpaid volunteers.
We are normally an Africa based charity but, in the light of the global pandemic, we have decided to diversify. With the help of local data collectors we’re mapping the extraordinary response in the UK to Coronavirus, building hope where we can.
In the coming weeks, we would also very much like to map other countries in the same way.
Through our UK maps, we illustrate the number of cases and deaths in every UK hospital, allowing you to track the spread of the virus in your community.
Against these grim statistics we are looking to provide more hope by celebrating the incredible work people are doing to support the National Health Service. We’re also supporting people made vulnerable in the community by mapping who these incredible people are, where they are based, and what they are doing.
On our “Great Big UK Hope Map” we are plotting these wonderful people and outlining their projects. This should help you find charities and groups in your local area and donate to them directly through our map.
However, if you just want to support a general charity or national theme, we have listed below some amazing groups.
We have completed initial mapping and built some great partnerships. We now need two things i) maximum publicity and ii) £200,000 would go an awfully long way towards paying for the core expenses of an unpaid team of volunteers, over a 2 year launch of a standing Global MapAid team in the UK.
