Our Approach
World Vision works in 100 countries, and we're responding to hunger in every one of them. Our humanitarian experts are constantly monitoring the countries where we work for trends in worsening hunger, drawing on data from multiple sources. Over the last year, we've identified 25 countries where the hunger situation is especially bad or deteriorating.
The list of countries, by region, is currently: 

World Vision has a large pool of experts to draw on both within these countries but also on hand to deploy and give technical support.  Each context is different and will need to respond in the most relevant way to what is happening on the ground.  We also collaborate with other agencies to make sure work is coordinated and effective. 

 

World Vision has: 

  • Experts in the logistics of delivering and distributing food and assessing children’s nutrition levels and getting the right food to them at the right time  

  • Specialists in providing cash assistance and vouchers to get money into the hands of the vulnerable and importantly to keep local markets going

  • Technicians in water, sanitation and hygiene – vital to malnourished children who so easily succumb to disease

  • Child protection professionals who know how to keep children safe and who support those who have already been harmed

  • Skilled resilience builders who advise farmers, district officials and community groups on how to adapt agriculture, infrastructure and livelihoods to cope with climate change, displacement and other threats

We work using tried and tested response models.  Here are some of the approaches we use:
