World Vision is providing emergency relief in PNG
On 26th February Papua New Guinea (PNG) was rocked by a magnitude 7.5 earthquake causing over 100 fatalities and hundreds more are injured.
Over 270,000 people need assistance in remote areas plagued by dangerous landslides. Water and food sources have been destroyed and many health facilities have been damaged beyond repair. 

We're working with our partners providing emergency water and sanitation to those in the Southern Highlands. We're also repairing health clinics and schools and working to provide an ongoing source of clean water supply.
