East Africa Hunger Crisis

Millions of children face starvation

A hunger crisis driven by drought, conflict and political instability is having a devastating impact on 25 million people across East Africa.

World Vision is on the ground continuing to provide life-saving support to the most vulnerable children and their families, but we need to reach more, and we can with your help. Your support today will save lives.

Children always bear the brunt of military conflict

“There’s a sense of hope for the future now that Mosul has been re-taken but, as our teams of social workers in the displaced persons camps see every day, children have been through a great deal and it will take time to recover from the emotional and psychological impacts of the violence they have witnessed.  There’s still a long road ahead.” Ian Dawes, Response Manager for World Vision Iraq.

World Vision is there supporting children in displaced camps outside of Mosul and rebuilding schools within the city to ensure children can return to an education.

Support the children of Mosul

40 Hour Famine

There’s still time to show your support!

The children of Syria certainly didn’t start the war, but arguably they’re the generation that has suffered the most. This 40 Hour Famine thousands of young New Zealanders banded together to raise funds and show the world we can do something about it.

By donating you will be helping to give a generation of Syrian refugee children education and hope for the future.
