Everyone deserves help and hope in times of crisis.

A humanitarian crisis delivers the heaviest blow to the most vulnerable—especially children—often in the world’s toughest places. In the wake of disasters, World Vision swiftly responds first to immediate needs, then stays for the long run to help communities rebuild.

Our local staff in nearly 100 countries, our Global Rapid Response Team, and our strategically located pre-positioning warehouses around the globe mean we are able to respond to disasters within 24 to 72 hours, delivering critical food, emergency water and sanitation solutions, relief supplies, shelter, safe places for children to learn and play, and other life-saving essentials.

Because of your partnership, we are able to prepare for and respond to emergencies before, during, and after it takes place:

  • Before emergencies happen, we work with communities to develop disaster preparedness plans that map out local threats and identify how to save lives and protect property—increasing families’ readiness and resilience.
  • During a crisis, our global staff activate the established plans and programming protocols and begin the shipping and distribution of supplies to help children and families get the support they need.
  • After our initial response, we work alongside communities over the long term to establish permanent housing, sustainable sources of clean water, food security, access to education and healthcare, and provide recovery loans to rebuild livelihoods and restore children’s sense of security.

What we have accomplished together so far

Since October 2015 you have helped us provide hope, urgent relief, and care for 15.9 million people impacted by disasters and humanitarian crises. Thank you for showing God’s love to those in need.

“I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.” —Jeremiah 31:13

Our Commitment

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.
