Now is the time to stand with the world’s most vulnerable children and their communities. The scale and spread of coronavirus COVID-19 is worrying for us all. The world is in an unprecedented position. We are all rightly concerned for our families, friends and communities during this difficult time. World Vision sends thoughts and prayers to everyone in the UK as we face this challenge.
While children are not currently considered the most vulnerable to this virus, they’re vulnerable to the secondary effects that it creates; there’s extra strain on health facilities and when their caregivers get sick, children are left without proper care and protection.
With your help, World Vision will continue to keep the world’s most vulnerable children and their communities safe. With weaker healthcare and communications systems, the impact on children living in some of the world’s toughest and most dangerous places will be devastating.
Thank you for joining with us during this pandemic to improve children’s wellbeing.
World Vision UK is a registered charity no: 285908
World Vision is urgently scaling up prevention measures in the vulnerable communities they serve around the world with:
- Promoting ‘stay healthy’ messaging at public hand washing stations
- Supporting local health centres to stop the spread of the virus
- Distributing essential hygiene kits and soap, sanitizer and masks where appropriate
These preventative measures have always been an important part of World Vision’s work, because in places of extreme poverty improving health, water, sanitation and hygiene saves lives. Given the challenges that communities are facing and will continue to face over the coming months, these things are more vital now than ever before.
Who will benefit?
