Our COVID-19 Response

Members, we are in this together.

It is no small task to balance your personal concerns, your professional duties, and to keep going for the sake of those we all serve, as part of our missions.

We hope that your loved ones and colleagues are safe and healthy because that’s the most important. As we, together, learn to navigate the landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is reassuring that we can reach out to each other for help, ideas, and support. In some ways, that’s what SEEP has always been about, and now should be no different.

As we simultaneously respond to evolving needs and stand by our commitment to support strategies serving vulnerable communities and people hit hardest by this and other crises, the SEEP team is here for you.

Putting people first

  • The health and safety of our team is our utmost priority. Starting March 9, our entire team has gone virtual with the closure of our office in Arlington, Virginia.
  • The Core Humanitarian Standards (CHS), which are the starting point for everything we do, are important reminders of our duty to our people - next to us or halfway across the world.
  • The SEEP Member Page and Member Directory are one-stop-shops to connect with fellow members, especially if you’re looking to find others in-country and field offices to create support networks for your colleagues. We understand that building human networks is still and most important. Make use of these resources and if you need a login to the Member Directory, please reach out.
