Emergency Response

At the heart of World Vision's humanitarian work in the world's most disaster-prone region is our commitment to the well-being and survival of the most vulnerable children.

Apart from COVID-19, numerous climate-induced disasters and protracted crises in Asia Pacific have severely affected the lives of over 63 million people.

Our response work in partnership with local and international actors includes innovative, multi-sectoral approaches and evidence-based programmes. We remain agile to respond quickly, providing relief and rehabilitation. We help affected communities recover, rehabilitate and build resilience through Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptive (CCA) initiatives.

When disaster strikes, we are on the ground, providing immediate relief, and we stay helping to rebuild lives for children, families, and communities.

COVID-19 Two Years On

Across Asia Pacific, we've supported almost 20 million people, including 8 million children through our COVID-19 response.


COVID-19 is the biggest global health, social, and economic crisis of our lifetime and is tearing children's lives apart.

Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation

For Asian children and youth, the climate crisis is ranked as their top concern, with many witnessing the disastrous effects first-hand.

Rohingya Refugee Response

Four years on, amid a global pandemic, nearly one million people remain stranded in the world’s largest refugee camp.

As Marawi's children begin to reclaim peace and normalcy, let us continue to support and empower them.
