Ordinary People Coming Together for Extraordinary Impact
Behind all the work that World Vision has been part of for the past 70 years, ordinary people - hidden heroes- have risen to meet the most relevant challenges of every era.
Today, we face a new challenge, a crisis of global proportions.
For 70 years, World Vision has brought heroes together during some of the world's darkest times to create better futures for vulnerable children.
When global disease outbreaks such as COVID-19, Ebola, Zika and H1N1 occur, we are on the ground, quickly providing support for vulnerable children...
We are responding to COVID-19 in every country where we work aiming to reach at least 72 million people.
Protecting children at increased risk of violence as a result of COVID-19
Even before COVID-19 upended families, societies, economies and systems, one billion children (half the world's children) experience some form of violence each year!
The ripple effects of the pandemic are putting an additional 85 million children at risk of experiencing violence.

Unleash your hidden hero!
Hidden heroes are striving to protect children around the world from violence - speaking out and supporting communities on the ground.
But COVID-19 is threatening to roll back years of progress.
The ripple effects of the pandemic could leave 85 million children at risk - isolated in unsafe homes, sent to work or pushed into early marriage. And the effects will last a lifetime.
It’s vital governments step in to prevent this devastating legacy.
Please support these hidden heroes by calling on governments and institutions to urgently increase funding for health, education and other social services that protect children from all forms of violence and abuse, especially for girls and boys at greater risk due to the impacts of COVID-19.
Unleash your hidden hero!
