One year on: COVID-19 Response
Wednesday, March 10, 2021
On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. In the face of the most harrowing health crisis in a century, World Vision immediately launched the largest humanitarian response in our 70-year history. We pivoted all 35,000 staff working in nearly 100 countries, utilising our decades of humanitarian experience, to respond in a way that ensured our programme quality and accountability to children and their families remained at the heart of our work.
This report reflects on the impact of the response over the last year and looks forward as we move into the next phase of the response.
