Millions of people - refugees, the displaced, and the poor - at risk as the coronavirus sweeps across the world. World Vision staff are hard at work partnering to defeat the pandemic

A global pandemic requires a global response. At World Vision, we are united across every operational area, programme and office.


For the past 70 years, when disaster strikes, we are on the ground, quickly providing immediate support: COVID-19 is no different.

We are responding in every country where we work in one form or another, our global COVID-19 emergency response, aims to provide targeted support to reach at least 72 million vulnerable people - including 36 million children - focusing on situations of pre-existing vulnerability and fragility, where children are most at risk - conflict affected contexts, urban slums and refugee settings.

The devastating aftershocks of the crisis are putting at least 30 million children’s lives at risk while putting 85 million more children are likely to experience violence. We urgently need to address both the direct health impacts of the virus and the indirect impacts brought about by viral containment measures

In every country and community where we work, we are committed to both limiting the spread of COVID-19 and also reducing its impact (physical, emotional and economical) on vulnerable children their families by:

This report looks at the findings of surveys, historical trends of pandemics and what a second wave of COVID-19 may look like as well as providing recommendations to prevent or mitigate additional waves.
