We urgently need your help to protect vulnerable children in dangerous places such as Afghanistan. Your pledge of $20 to Children in Crisis will provide $100 worth of life-saving essentials every month thanks to our partnerships across the United Nations.

Your support will help refugees, children living in war zones and those in danger of exploitation like trafficking, child labour and child marriage.

Pacific communities are suffering from crushing COVID-19 pandemic aftershocks.

<br>Pacific communities are suffering from crushing COVID-19 pandemic aftershocks.

The aftershocks of COVID-19, its impacts on livelihoods, hunger, and access to healthcare are devastating communities in the Pacific region and Timor-Leste as much as the virus itself, and sometimes to an even greater extent.

Entire communities are bracing for a post-COVID rebuild which will take years because of wholesale job losses putting children at greater risk of violence and being forced to skip meals, and reducing access to already stretched healthcare.

The Pacific Aftershocks report by World Vision looks at the impact of the pandemic on lives and livelihoods, tipping this to be one of the biggest challenges facing the Pacific in the coming decade and why a once-in-a-generation response is required.
