For over 20 years, we’ve delivered one of the world’s largest food assistance programs in partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme. Each year, we deliver emergency food assistance to millions of hungry families affected by conflict, disaster and other forces out of their control.
You can help make a bigger impact than ever before by donating to the Big Impact Appeal. Our focus is on increasing our programming in areas where we already work and our costs per person have reduced, meaning the value of your donation can be multiplied 18 times! This year, your donation will help people in need in 13 countries, including those affected by the Syria, East Africa and Myanmar-Bangladesh crises. You can help continue a child’s story.
The explosion of bombs and shooting of guns in the streets of Syria forced Catherine’s family to flee. The five-year-old now lives in a makeshift tent in a refugee settlement in Lebanon where she is deprived of her childhood and has to share rations between 13 people. She is trapped in a state of uncertainty, feeling desperate as the days grow longer and Catherine’s mother, Aysha, loses hope for her children’s future.
Young Monira, an 18-year-old Rohingya refugee, lives with her two children in the world’s largest refugee settlement in Bangladesh. Many children there suffer from malnutrition, infection and disease. Thankfully, with the help of generous supporters, World Vision runs a life-saving program in the camp which prevents and manages malnutrition for children by providing high-energy supplements and nutrition training to their parents.

Food for work, food for training and school meals initiatives are all part of our food assistance programming. Food for work involves providing families with short-term rations in exchange for work on the building or rehabilitation of community infrastructure such as dams and roads. This helps to improve long-term food security and community resilience. Through food for training, community members learn new farming skills and other ways to sustainably increase their incomes. School meals provide children with nutritious food and encourage their attendance - maximising their chance to overcome poverty in the long term.
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. For over two decades, World Vision has been partnering with the WFP to deliver food assistance.
The WFP provides food and supplies, while we ensure these reach those most in need. We also use our expertise in long-term development to deliver food as part of comprehensive food assistance programming -- including livelihoods training, school feeding programs and food for assets initiatives.
