You’ve helped save lives and protect children and healthcare workers!


Since the onset of the pandemic, World Vision’s response team has reached 44 million people, including 18 million children, with protective equipment (PPE), handwashing stations, clean water, quarantine and isolation spaces, and food security assistance. We’ve helped children continue their schooling online where possible and worked with families and community leaders to protect children at higher risk of domestic violence and child marriage due to the extra stress and economic shocks of lockdown.


Here are some of the ways you’ve helped people during the pandemic.

World Vision is distributing door-to-door bleach and sanitising products


In Lebanon, World Vision is distributing door-to-door bleach and sanitising products to Syrian refugees, while reminding children about proper handwashing. Crowded spaces like refugee camps are at especially high risk of COVID-19 due to difficulties in social distancing and lack of access to essential water, hygiene and sanitation facilities. In Lebanon, World Vision has supported nearly 30,000 community members with COVID-19 preventive materials such as masks and hand sanitisers.

“Being a frontliner is a challenging task especially when the enemy is invisible,” says Lenny Lyn, a government health worker in the Philippines.
I am worried especially because I have an infant waiting for me at home. But I need to take on this task of being a health worker, because it is where I am most needed. I hope that the country will recover from this pandemic and everything will get back to normal. For now, I will do my part to achieve the goal of a country that is free from COVID-19.

Jessica, a mother of three in the Philippines, received an unconditional cash transfer to help her feed her children during the crisis.


“I was already having a hard time as a single mother before COVID-19," says Jessica, a mother of three in the Philippines who received an unconditional cash transfer to help her feed her children during the crisis.
But since the community quarantine was imposed, I’ve never felt more helpless. It has been two months since I was rendered jobless. It frustrates me and it breaks my heart when my children cry because of hunger. I used the Php1,000 (US$20) I received to buy rice and vitamins for the children. I am thankful to World Vision because we were chosen [for the unconditional cash transfer] to help meet the needs of our children.

In Kenya,11-year-old Obed and his brother Paul display the application that they use for online learning. Before the pandemic, their mother Anne was trained through a World Vision-supported project, Women and the Web, to set up an online business. Now, she’s using her IT skills to help her children learn while schools are closed.
I use my mum’s phone to do my homework. Initially, subjects like science, maths and English were difficult for me, but with my mum’s help I have started understanding them.
- Obed

Remote learning made possible
