Conflict, climate, and COVID-19 are driving hunger and a sharp rise in the lack of food in many fragile and humanitarian contexts. In FY20, World Vision delivered humanitarian aid to 27.9 million people, of which 15 million received food assistance. World Vision is able to reach suffering families and children in the hardest-hit countries as the World Food Program's largest partner. Because of donor partnerships, every dollar that you invest with World Vision becomes eight dollars.
Millions of children are one step away from starvation and facing the threat of famine. Urgent life-saving action is needed NOW to prevent a humanitarian hunger crisis in which hundreds of thousands of children could die. Famine has no place in the 21st century and is entirely preventable. Conflict, COVID-19 and climate change are now interacting to create new and worsening hunger hotspots and reversing the gains families had made to escape poverty.
World Vision is on the ground in hunger hotspots around the globe, providing life-saving assistance, tackling malnutrition, providing clean water and protecting children from harm. Our response will target 15 million people who face life-threatening starvation.
