Help provide Family Emergency Kits to families in the U.S.
For the first time in our 70-year history, World Vision has declared a Global Health Emergency Response. And that includes right here in the United States. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise at alarming rates with schools closing and stay at home orders happening in cities across the nation, World Vision is mobilizing churches across the U.S. through access to high-quality donated products such as clothing, personal protective and hygiene items, food, and more to serve the most vulnerable families in their churches and communities allowing them to share the love of Jesus Christ.
World Vision needs $10M to execute and scale our U.S. response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working in 13 strategic locations to provide 650,000 people with food, protective items like hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, and other essentials they desperately need through a Family Emergency Kit. Schools often provide the primary meal for vulnerable children and the Family Emergency Kit offers families an opportunity to fill the void left by school closures.
$75 can provide a Family Emergency Kit which includes:
- Nutritious fruits and vegetables, protein, pasta, rice and cereal to feed a family of five for one week.
- School supplies like color crayons, erasers, scissors, glue and more.
- Hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and first-aid antiseptic.
- Paper products including toilet paper and paper towels.
- Books, board games, and coloring books.
In addition to the Family Emergency Kits, World Vision’s programs are protecting children and families by providing critical supplies to medical centers with Personal Protective Equipment including face masks, gloves and hand sanitizer.
Please donate today to help us continue to focus on showing the love of God to children and families in the U.S. by providing them with the essential items and food they need.
Thank you for your support and your prayers: for those who are sick and quarantined, for families who’ve lost loved ones, for health workers dedicated to stopping the virus and for God’s perfect love to cast out fear.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
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.
