Why World Vision is in Central African Republic

Central African Republic, a fragile state, continues to face intermittent and localized outbreaks of violence which deteriorate further the already dire humanitarian situation. Due to the unpredictable security situation, humanitarian access has been severely hampered in the east-central part of the country, which is where most of the need exists. In addition, a cholera outbreak this year has not yet been contained. A total of 2.3 million people are in need of assistance.

We never give up on people

With so much happening around the world, it can be hard to decide where your money can have the greatest impact. With your help through the Where Most Needed fund, we can respond quickly to urgent needs of the world's most vulnerable children and families. And, thanks to grant funds and donated products, your monthly gifts multiply 4 times in impact.
