“We’re not capable of dreaming for the future. My children were born and raised in a tent. There is no tomorrow for them.”
— Aysha, mother
In recent years, civil wars, armed conflicts and hunger have become more intensive and complex. Children and families are threatened by violence and exploitation, leaving them in great danger. Every minute, 31 people are escaping from their hometown because of conflict. Children witness war, experience uncountable life-and-death situations, hunger and displacement. Suffering families desperately need someone to walk with them and to bring living hope to their children.
Your support offers opportunities of Survival, Recovery and Hope.
Since last century, World Vision has been responding to the world’s most urgent disasters and humanitarian crises, by delivering timely aids to conflicted and vulnerable areas. The goal of World Vision is to be “first in” and “last out”—seeing families and communities through hardship to restoration.
Distribute emergency aid, such as food, clean water and hygiene kits
Provide shelter and basic commodities to meet urgent needs
As soon as conflict erupts, the displaced lack basic necessities such as food, clean water and shelter, and live in constant hunger, illness and fear. You can help them regain the capacity to thrive.
Help construct infrastructure such as water systems and latrines as communities rebuild and develop
Provide support such as improved seeds and beekeeping training to improve livelihoods and expand income sources
In areas affected by conflict, infrastructure is often destroyed or inadequate. Families are unable to make ends meet, meaning that children live with limited assurance. You can help them rebuild livelihoods.
Provide a safe living environment for children and families
Run Child Friendly Spaces to provide psychological assistance for children, and offer education or skills training for children and youths
During conflicts or crises, children are traumatised by the inevitable separation from, or the loss of, their loved ones, and left to live in despair. You can help them restore hope.
