Protect and provide for refugee children

Help children whose lives have been changed in an instant.

Please donate to help refugee children and families survive, recover from trauma and rebuild their lives.

Never before have the immediate needs of vulnerable children and their families been so great. Climate change, food shortages and violence have only made things worse for the 103 million people, including 36 million children, who've been forced to flee their homes. 

For refugees and forcibly displaced people, the challenges they face are beyond what most of us can imagine. Many are forced to live in overcrowded camps, where conditions are harsh and children are at high risk of violence, neglect and exploitation. Childhoods are lost, along with the hopes and dreams of these vulnerable children, when all they want is safety, stability and friendship.

Donate to help children and families as they seek to survive,
recover, and rebuild their lives.

In the midst of crisis, you can help supply urgently needed food and water to refugee children and families who’ve lost access to life’s essentials and don’t know where their next meal will come from.

We help vulnerable refugee children survive, recover from trauma and rebuild their lives.

How World Vision assists refugees

World Vision coordinates activities with national governments and other aid organizations to achieve the best outcomes for people affected by crises. Because we have a continuing presence in nearly 100 countries, we are well-positioned to meet the needs of displaced people, whether they’re in their own country or living as refugees.

How we work in emergencies

When emergencies hit, children are often the most at risk. That’s why we need to be there – in places torn apart by disasters and conflict.
