Families having to flee their homes after flash floods hit Kasese, Uganda © 2020 World Vision

Urgent appeal

Millions of families are left homeless and urgently need your help.

Help families in desperate need

Every year, all across the world, millions of families are displaced, either by conflict or natural disasters.

Families forced from their homes lack food, shelter and sanitation. Families like Joy’s, whose home, livelihood, food and belongings were swept away in the flash floods that hit Kasese, Uganda, last year. The family sought refuge in their local church. 

Huddled together in makeshift shelters, without food or clean water – livelihoods destroyed and options limited by lockdown – displaced families face other dangers, especially during a pandemic. Children in particular are vulnerable to malnutrition, illness, violence and exploitation.

We had to hurry out of our home. In the dark, we just ran. I thought we were going to die but God had mercy on us.

Help a child who has lost everything

Can you help?

At the end of 2019, more than 5 million people were made homeless due to natural disasters. In the first half of 2020 alone, disasters displaced almost another 10 million people. And more than 1 billion people face being displaced by 2050 due to the climate crisis.

More important now than ever

As climate change is intensifying the devastation caused by natural disasters, and coronavirus threatens lives and livelihoods too, please help us be there for children who’ve lost everything.
