Emergency Relief

When disaster strikes, World Vision adopts a “first in, last out” approach where we first respond with life-saving emergency aid and then stay for the long term to help families recover and rebuild.

How does World Vision respond?

World Vision responds to two main types of emergency:

  • Rapid-onset, fast hitting natural disasters, which include earthquakes, cyclones, floods and tsunamis
  • Slow-onset disasters, which include droughts, famine and suffering caused by conflict and war

Our relief works seek primarily to prevent loss of life and reduce suffering as much as possible for affected children, as well as their families and communities. World Vision is also committed to strengthening the local community to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.
