How donations are spent

Lives transformed forever. Here's exactly how.

Transforming children's lives

Together, in 2023, World Vision UK supported 2.5 million children in 182 projects across 36 countries.

Altogether our work directly benefited 4.5 million people. Within this, we responded to 53 emergencies across 21 countries, supporting over a million children and 2.5 million people.

It’s all thanks to incredible supporters across the country who believe every child deserves a chance.

For every pound spent by World Vision UK, 84p went towards our work to care for and protect vulnerable children around the world and 16p was spent on raising another pound.

Who are you helping?

We help the most vulnerable children in the world. You can read all about how we transform the lives of children and their families.

Children forced from home during the Ukraine conflict have benefitted from World Vision's work, in Ukraine and in bordering countries like Romania. Over 650,000 Ukrainians have received assistance, including food, shelter, cash, hygiene kits, education, medical supplies and Child Friendly Spaces.

How can you help?

There’s still so much we need to do. There are millions of children struggling to survive, who risk losing their childhoods, their families, and their hope.

We work with communities to help them bring about change in the longer term, as well as providing emergency relief when disasters strike. We provide immediate support, and we stay, helping to rebuild lives for children, families and communities.

This simply wouldn’t be possible without thousands of people like you.
