A stable, nutritious food supply is essential to life.
By making a donation to the Multiplying Gift Appeal or our Emergency Preparedness Fund, by purchasing from our gift catalogue or by sponsoring a child, you can help to ensure that children and families have access to the food they need for good health and wellbeing.
You can also get involved in advocating for change to policies that deny people living in poor communities their human right to enough food.
World Vision is Australia’s largest humanitarian aid organisation. Helping communities meet urgent food needs and secure long-term access to nutritious food are important elements of our relief, development and advocacy work, but we need ongoing support from concerned Australians.
Your donation to our Multiplying Gift Appeal
will provide up to 10 times its value in food aid and other relief essentials to communities in crisis in countries including Zimbabwe, Kenya and Uganda.
We have also set up an Emergency Preparedness Fund
so that we can respond quickly when disaster strikes in poor communities. Your contribution to this fund will support activities including the pre-positioning of life-saving supplies and ensuring that trained staff can be on the scene as quickly as possible.
Our gift catalogue
contains items that help communities grow nutritious food, generate income and restore and improve their environments. You can also sign up to do the 40 Hour Famine
or sponsor a child
and help bring about long-term change for entire communities.
Beyond financial support, there are other things you can do. Ask questions. Get involved.
You can send letters and emails to politicians at local, state and federal levels urging them to take action; you can sign petitions; and you can even volunteer for World Vision
to work on campaigns and events to raise awareness.
Getting active and supporting World Vision's efforts are great ways to make a real and lasting contribution to building strong and healthy communities.
