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

Urgent appeal

When disaster strikes, children suffer most. But you can change that today.

Every year, millions of children are forced to flee their homes by conflict or natural disaster.

Children like five-year-old Omar. When Hurricane Eta hit Honduras, he was scared and confused. Any sense of security swept away with his home and all his belongings.

Food, homes, livelihoods – all ripped away without warning. That’s what millions of families face when disaster turns their world upside down.

In the aftermath of a disaster, children can lose everything. You can be there when they urgently need help.
