SURVIVOR COMMUNITIES
SPONSOR A CHILD, TRANSCEND SURVIVAL

From Survival to Revival

Children have an innate resilience

to bounce back and recover from disasters.

With child sponsorship,

they can transcend survival.

FROM SURVIVAL TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Disasters can push people into poverty,while poor people are more vulnerable to the effects of disasters.

World Vision strengthens children against the effects of disasters, as well as support survivors to sustainable development.

SURVIVORS OF DISASTERS WANT TO THRIVE

As both man-made and natural disasters become increasingly frequent, the effects of disasters on the world’s poorest people become more significant. In fact, marginalised and impoverished communities suffer more when a disaster strikes, and take a longer time to recover from more severe destruction in the aftermath.


What happens to these communities after a disaster, and how can they recover strongly?

Disaster response must transit into development over time.

Survivors must be supported from getting back on their feet,

to re-embarking on stable, sustainable development once more.

In 2015, an earthquake affected 39 out of Nepal’s 75 districts, with an estimated 8.1 million living in them.

Close to 9,000 people were killed, more than 22,000 people were injured and more than 888,255 houses

were damaged or destroyed. World Vision helped over half a million people through:

Help other disaster-stricken children and families around the world.

Farming families in Ethiopia have been exposed to droughts and erratic extreme weather in recent years.

Last year, a hunger crisis struck the land when rains failed to come. Snow drowned crops and a drought devastated livestock.


World Vision helped some 105,239 people affected by drought, displacement and food insecurity through:

ETHIOPIA

Children in Yaya Gulele, Ethiopia, look to avert the worst effects of drought and famine.

This is possible through early resilience building among their families. Farmers look to be trained early to diversify crops,

learn climate-resilient techniques and new irrigation methods to before the next disaster, to ensure that their children

are protected from extreme hunger.
