Humanitarian and emergency relief
Responding to the needs of those affected by conflict and disaster
When conflict or disaster strikes, World Vision seeks to save lives, reduce suffering, and build resilience. Around the globe, pre-positioned supplies and experienced staff are ready to respond to immediate needs such as the lack of food, water, shelter, and safe spaces for children. But our goal, wherever possible, is investing in medium- to long-term recovery and rehabilitation. Local World Vision staff members help families to rebuild their lives and restore livelihoods in ways that empower communities to become more resilient to future crises.
In the 2016 financial year, we responded to seven new and continuing emergencies in areas such as Fiji, Nepal, and South Sudan.
