Behind every crisis there is hunger.

The worst food crisis in a generation - 50 million people now face starvation.

A worsening climate crisis.

A global pandemic.

Ongoing conflict.

They are all driving a global food crisis like no other. 

Children are not just starving, they are being starved.

However, there is still hope.

Hunger’s a complex issue, not a hopeless one.

By donating today you can help children facing starvation 
survive, recover and build a future.

World Vision is responding with its largest-ever appeal for a global humanitarian response. We are targeting 25 most-at-risk nations with life-saving aid and assistance in countries where children are one step away from famine, living with acute malnutrition and facing the threat of civil unrest and other vulnerabilities.

How your donations will help

Your donations help provide emergency food supplies, therapeutic meals for children recovering from malnutrition, and assistance with farming practices and infrastructure for displaced communities.

How we work in emergencies

Right now, children are facing hunger around the world. There are now 923,000 people living under catastrophic famine-like conditions – a 550% rise on March 2021, while globally hunger increased 25% in 2020, following decades of decline. The situation is worsening in many hunger hotspots around the globe. 

That’s why we need to be there – in the places most affected by natural disasters and poverty.
