World Vision is prepared with pre-positioned supplies and trained relief staff to respond rapidly to any disaster anywhere in the world. We are often one of the first organizations on the ground with life-saving emergency aid, and we stay for the long term to help families recover and rebuild.
Your gift will enable World Vision to provide disaster relief around the world, including these crisis situations:
- After Nepal was struck by two devastating earthquakes, we launched a response to provide relief to 100,000 people in the worst-affected areas.
- Extreme drought in Somalia is causing millions to go hungry as access to food and water becomes increasingly difficult. World Vision is responding through food aid and emergency relief programs.
- World Vision is providing urgently-needed aid, including food assistance, hygiene kits, and clean water to help persecuted families in Iraq, as well as Syrian refugees seeking safe shelter in Lebanon and Jordan.
- Typhoon Haiyan – one of the strongest storms in history - devastated communities in the Philippines. It was followed a year later by Typhoon Hagupit. World Vision is continuing to provide essential support for vulnerable children and their families in the Philippines.
World Vision urgently needs your support to help children and families suffering from these and other disasters around the world. Your gift will help us rush emergency supplies like life-saving food, clean water, medical supplies, and shelter to survivors. And you’ll help ensure that we have pre-positioned supplies in place to respond to the next disaster.
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.
