Stronger together

With all the conflict in the world resulting in brokenness and hunger, it’s great to have a partner like World Vision who clearly understand that there’s nothing more powerful than loving your neighbour as yourself.

Your donation is multiplied in value 18 times through our partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme.

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.

Should funds raised for the Big Impact Appeal exceed the amount required to fund World Vision's work in delivering food assistance and other essential supplies provided by the World Food Programme and other United Nations agencies, World Vision will use the excess funds in other work to help communities respond to the long-term effects of food insecurity.

^ Your donation will help support activities including general food distribution, vulnerable group feeding, cash and voucher distribution, food for work and school meals programs.

Excitement and relief on distribution day

Impact story

During 2019, generous supporters like you helped to feed around 360,000 refugees in northern Uganda who’ve fled violence in neighbouring countries including South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). 

On distribution day, refugees living in settlements across the region flock to their allocated distribution centre run by World Vision and the UN World Food Programme to collect their monthly ration of staples including rice, flour, beans and cooking oil. 

Among those regularly receiving this food is 34-year-old Butoto, who was forced to flee the DRC with her three children when violence erupted in her village and claimed her husband’s life.

After lining up in the hot sun along with 5,000 others, Butoto is grateful when she’s ushered into the warehouse to collect her family’s ration.

Rice is the children’s favourite, but they are always excited with whatever she brings home to them. Butoto’s daughter Alina, aged 10, enjoys helping her mum cook before the family sits down together to share their meal. 

Behind the scenes, making sure that families like Butoto’s receive the food they need, are dedicated distribution staff like Suzan. She leads a team of about 15 people recruited from the local area. 

"I love giving back to people," Suzan says. "I never want to see people hungry or suffering so it gives me great joy to serve food to such vulnerable groups."

Climate change drives alarming rise in hunger

Need story

Christila is among 3 million children in southern Africa caught in the grip of extreme hunger. In Angola, the worst drought in 38 years has destroyed crops and plunged thousands of families into a desperate fight for survival. 

When her mother Muchilange brought her to a hospital in southern Angola, Christila weighed just 6kgs; she had a raging fever and was weak and lethargic.  

She has improved somewhat with medical treatment, but still has a long way to go. And Muchilange worries what might happen when they leave the hospital. 

"When we had plenty of food, we’d eat three times a day," Muchilange explains. "But now that we don’t have much, we just eat once a day … We are hungry."

The growing impacts of climate change across southern Africa are driving an alarming increase in child malnutrition. In the past two years, the region has experienced three major cyclones, floods, a crippling drought as well as record high temperatures. 

With widespread crop failure, families are resorting to harmful coping mechanisms just to put food on the table for another day – more young girls are being married off and children are dropping out of school to try and find work. 

We must act now to help save the lives of children like Christila. Your donation can help meet immediate food needs and enable families to build resilience to an increasing number of climate-related disasters.
