As the war in Ukraine continues to cause devastation and displacement, over 8.2 million refugees, mostly women and children, have sought safety across Europe and beyond. Now, the collapse of the Kakhovka dam in the country’s southern region has worsened the situation, leading to widespread flooding, abandoned homes, a lack of clean water , danger from displaced explosives, and the potential for waterborne diseases to spread. Learn more about the emergency and what World Vision is doing to help people affected by the crisis.
Why World Vision is in Georgia
Communities in Georgia live with tension between different ethnic and religious groups due to perceived and actual inequities in resource distribution and rights. The economic situation is improving, but many youth are still unemployed (34%) and often living on the street. This makes them more susceptible to trafficking and other exploitation.
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.
Prayer Requests from Georgia
World Vision's staff in Georgia are asking us to join them in prayer for the following:
Pray that street youth experience God's and their neighbors' love as we reach out to care for them.
