Protect and provide for refugee children

Help children whose lives have been changed in an instant.

Refugee children across the world urgently need your help.

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.

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. 

Your donations help us act fast when refugees' lives change in an instant.
