Expert Teams—World Vision’s 35-member Global Rapid Response Team stands ready for deployment within 24 to 72 hours of a disaster.
Local Partnerships—Aware of the complexity of most disasters, World Vision often partners with other international and local relief agencies and local leaders to maximize the speed and effectiveness of our response.
Immediate Aid—World Vision provides urgent humanitarian relief and services for impacted children and families.
Child-Friendly Spaces—These innovative centers offer children a safe place to play, begin emotional healing and re-establish a normal routine.
Asset Restoration—World Vision facilitates a return to normalcy by restoring water sources, food, health care services, educational resources and shelter lost in the disaster.
Economic Development—We work to jump-start damaged local economies—and drastically reduce the need for ongoing assistance—by providing in-kind or cash loans to small business owners, farmers, herders and fishermen.
Peacebuilding—In areas impacted by civil conflict,World Vision engages in reconciliation, mediation, and partnership-building efforts between opposing groups.
Long-term Development—With a commitment to recovery, our emergency interventions often lead to long-term development programs such as child sponsorship.
