Children in Emergencies

Help children caught up in

Emergency Situations

World Vision has the size, experience and expertise to respond immediately when disasters strike. Because we have offices in 100 countries, we are often already
based in disaster regions, with local staff being able to start work immediately - and can be on site the very next day.

 

 

 

We respond. And we stay.

During a disaster, we focus on health, education, and protection, and as always our goals are to protect children, save lives, and reduce suffering, and as best we can we protect livelihoods, strengthen community resilience and promote peace. The Global Rapid Response Team works alongside local staff for the first 90 days of a disaster. They then set up a long-term team of regional staff to continue the work. There is never a quick fix for a high-level disaster, and long-term recovery plans are essential to get communities back on their feet. In addition to this, we work extremely effectively with the local communities and local governments to ensure that the immediate and longer term response to crises are effective.

Preparing, responding, and helping communities recover.

Our Emergency Aid work isn’t just temporary. As well as providing on-the-ground assistance to those affected at the time of a disaster, our involvement lasts longer than the headlines. For weeks, months or years after a disaster we help give lasting solutions to communities in need.

 
We’ve had a presence here in Ireland for more than 35 years, it’s been the generosity of ordinary people that’s allowed us to play a major role in aid efforts throughout the world. Just in the past few years, World Vision Ireland - with the help of our supporters - has provided funding for disasters in more than 17 countries, including the earthquakes in Nepal, Typhoon Haiyan and the conflicts in Syria and Yemen.

 

 

 

 

From conflict to cyclones, last year World Vision helped more than 14 million people affected by emergencies; more than 9.5 million of them were children.
