Making a difference after disasters
World Vision has the size, experience and expertise to respond immediately with emergency aid when disaster happens. Our goals are to protect children, save lives, reduce suffering, protect livelihoods, strengthen community resilience and promote peace. We are always ready to provide on-the-ground aid and assistance to those affected.
World Vision has a global network of disaster response experts, who assess the impact of each disaster, plan the response, request funding from offices, like World Vision Ireland, and get to work immediately. The Global Rapid Response Team responds within 24 to 72 of hours of a major disaster. The team includes logistics staff, child protection experts, water, health and sanitation experts, and communications staff.
