In 2019, the world faced an unprecedented global health and economic crisis at a catastrophic scale; one that has claimed millions of lives, spread human suffering and turned people's lives upside down.
In the last two years, we've exceeded our initial aim of reaching
72 million people
prioritising the world's most vulnerable children and their families as they've faced COVID-19.
BUT WE ARE NOT DONE YET.
Hundred of millions of children have been made much more vulnerable by the pandemic's indirect impacts. We're continuing to respond to COVID-19 itself and the challenges that have come with it.
SECONDARY IMPACTS THREATEN MORE CHILDREN’S LIVES
THAN THE DISEASE ITSELF

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause massive economic disruption around the world, especially harming the extreme poor. Throughout COVID-19, many vulnerable families have experienced a loss of income, as lockdowns and public health initiatives forced many sectors to close.
Small farms and businesses face ongoing disruption to markets for their products and services, reduced buying power by their customers, and havoc for businesses’ caused by illness and restrictions on movement.
Over the next 3 years, World Vision is supporting vulnerable families in Vietnam who have depleted their savings - helping them reignite farming and business activities to recover their livelihoods.
