Frostbite. Pneumonia. Raging Fire. When children can't get warm, death can come in many forms. Your gift multiplies 8 times in impact to send life-saving clothes to children around the world.
On an icy morning in Armenia, two young brothers built a fire in their rickety stove to stay warm while their parents were at work. When the fire began to die down, the children poured oil on the embers and ignited an inferno that destroyed their home and burned the younger boy's face before he was pulled to safety.
Unsafe fires are not uncommon among families that can't afford to protect themselves from the cold. Those with few resources often rely on desperate measures to survive, unless someone reaches out to help.
Generous corporate partners have donated millions of dollars' worth of thick coats, warm pants and shirts, heavy sweaters, hats and scarves, sturdy shoes, and more. That means your gift multiplies 8 times in impact to help distribute these items to the children and families who need them most.
Brutal cold shouldn't put children and families at risk. Please help them today.
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.
