Escalating violence and exploitation in Central American countries, including El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, have resulted in a humanitarian crisis stretching from Central America to the U.S. Thousands of unaccompanied children are fleeing their homes and leaving families behind to risk the long journey to the U.S. for safety. Just since October, more than 52,000 children crossed the border; many are in need of immediate care.
World Vision is working with churches and community partners in 13 locations throughout the U.S. to provide for those immediate needs. And since we’ve received generous donations from corporate partners, your gift will multiply 8X in impact to provide things like clothing, shoes, hygiene kits, school supplies, activity kits, and other essentials. We’re also helping to equip the supporting community partners with essentials, such as cleaning supplies, diapers, paper products, and other materials.
Please pray for the children impacted by this crisis, and give a gift today that will multiply 8X in impact to respond to their immediate needs.
Donations made to the U.S. Border Crisis Relief Fund will be used exclusively for U.S. Border relief.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
