World Vision Emergency Response
A History Of Taking Action In The Face Of Fear
World Vision works in some of the most fragile contexts on earth to equip children, families, and their communities for healthier lives. With our 70-year history of emergency response and our presence in nearly 100 countries, we have the expertise and reach to confront COVID19 as it spreads to vulnerable communities in the developing world. In particular, our responses to epidemics and health crises like Zika, Ebola, and HIV and AIDS have resulted in breakthrough reductions in the spread of these diseases. From the moment this pandemic was declared we’ve been mobilizing resources and providing essential protective supplies for health workers and families, as well as providing stay-healthy training, helping set up public hand-washing facilities, and ensuring that the children impacted most get the basics they need.
