Escalating violence and exploitation in Central American countries, including El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, has resulted in a humanitarian crisis stretching from Central America to the United States. Thousands of unaccompanied children are fleeing their homes and leaving families behind to risk the long journey to the United States for safety. Tens of thousands of children have crossed the border; many are in need of immediate care.
World Vision is working with churches and community partners in 13 locations throughout the United States 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 items like clothing, shoes, hygiene kits, school supplies, activity kits, and other basics. 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 humanitarian 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.
