Emergencies can devastate the communities they hit,
and the speed of a response can be – literally –
a matter of life and death.

Your donation now, before an emergency strikes, means World Vision can be ready to help. 
Your generosity can help provide survivors of emergencies with food, clean water, mental health support, education, disease prevention and child protection activities. 

Your donations in action

Sudan Hunger Crisis Appeal

Conflict has created Sudan’s worst hunger crisis ever recorded. Over 700,000 children are at risk of dying. Please help save lives.

Syria Türkiye earthquake

The scale of devastation in northwest Syria and southeast Türkiye is beyond imagination. You can help provide shelter and warmth.

Ukraine Appeal

Displaced children and families fleeing conflict in Ukraine urgently need food, shelter and protection.

Child Hunger Appeal

50 million people are at risk of starvation. Conflict, climate change and COVID-19 are driving a hunger and malnutrition emergency.

Northern Ethiopia Crisis

Conflict makes children vulnerable to hunger and violence. They also face the danger of being recruited to take up arms.

Syrian Refugee Crisis

Ongoing conflict has forced more than half of Syria’s population, including five million children, to flee their homes.

Your donation helps us be ready when emergencies strike

By donating to support our work in emergencies you can help us be first on the ground with life-saving aid like food, water and shelter.

Should we receive more contributions than needed for an emergency appeal, we will use the excess in other emergency-related activities.

The global impact you’re part of

We couldn't do it without you.

Your generosity creates the kind of change that lasts for generations and feels incredible to be part of.

For over 70 years, World Vision has worked alongside communities, donors, partners and governments to create opportunities for children and their families to change their futures.

We are part of the global World Vision Partnership that has nearly 35,000 staff in 100 countries.

Partnerships for emergency programming

We are part of the Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP), a partnership between the Australian Government and Australian NGOs. The AHP aims to save lives, alleviate suffering and enhance human dignity in the face of conflict, disasters and other humanitarian crises. 

Through the AHP, World Vision has received funds for humanitarian activities in Ukraine, Romania, Moldova, Sri Lanka, Mozambique, Bangladesh (Rohingya crisis), Indonesia, Vanuatu, South Sudan, Vietnam, Timor-Leste, Solomon Islands, PNG and Lebanon. As the AHP mechanism continues into the next phase, more countries will benefit.

The AHP's "Disaster READY" program is in its second phase. It supports Pacific communities and governments to better prepare for and respond to disasters. The program places specific emphasis on the inclusion of women, people with disability and faith-based organisations in disaster preparedness.
