The COVID-19 pandemic is already having a significant impact on the protection of cultural heritage in conflict areas, through the postponement of planned work and the potential destabilization of the local economic and social fabric. Indeed, this health crisis may lead to deeper and lasting transformations in the cultural heritage sector.
Consequently, to remain faithful to its values of solidarity and partnership, ALIPH has set up an extraordinary relief fund to support the heritage sector in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposed support mechanisms should meet urgent needs, while taking into account foreseeable long-term transitions.
In response to the massive destruction of cultural heritage, the world has decided to come together.
ALIPH is the only global fund that is solely dedicated to the protection of cultural heritage in conflict areas. To carry out this mission, the foundation finances preventive measures, emergency interventions and concrete post-conflict rehabilitation projects, all around the world.
