Protect and provide for refugee children

whose lives have been changed in an instant.

From teddy bears to ticking bombs — young children’s lives are changed forever when conflict erupts. Children from Ukraine, Syria and other war-torn countries have been forced to leave everything behind.

Across the world, 82.4 million people have been forced to flee their homes, more than ever before. 

Children’s lives change in an instant as they are forced to give up their childhoods and flee for their lives. This is not the future any child dreams of.

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.

  • World Vision has helped more than 6.5 million children in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq and is also working within Syria.
  • World Vision operates in all 34 Rohingya camps in Bangladesh, providing aid for nearly 500,000 refugees.
  • World Vision helps South Sudanese refugees in Uganda with emergency food, livelihood training, healthcare, access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene, and educational opportunities.
  • World Vision carries out relief or development programs in 14 of the DRC’s 26 provinces.
  • World Vision reaches 200,000 people within Romania, 50,000 within Ukraine and 20,000 inside Moldova. We are also supporting many of the estimated 4,500 refugees who have fled to Georgia.
We try not to tell him this is war.

Ukrainian families are forced to leave with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They try to protect their children from the horrors of an escalating conflict, but there’s only so much they can do. 

Thanks to our donors, we have so far assisted 27.1 million people through 66 emergency responses.
