• £8 could buy a mosquito bed net, saving a child from nasty mosquito bites and protecting them from malaria
• £35 could provide an emergency food assistance bundle in the aftermath of a disaster - enough dry and preserved food to feed a family of five for a month, while they begin to rebuild their lives
• £56 could buy two home caregivers with two bars of soap, 28 masks, and a bottle of disinfectant each (enough for each to care for one person with mild coronavirus symptoms for two weeks)
Donate to World Vision today, and you'll help vulnerable children like Tania
In Bangladesh, one of the poorest countries in the world, families like Tania's have no safety net. Millions of daily wage earners have no savings and no way to provide for and protect their children as cases of coronavirus continue to grow. We’re working to prevent the spread in Bangladesh and around the world, sharing vital information about the importance of good hygiene and hand washing. And we’re distributing essential food packages, soap, sanitiser and masks.
This will save lives. But we need your support to reach more communities and people in desperate need.
Seven-year-old Tania is one of thousands of children at risk right now. When coronavirus reached her home in March, the government declared a lockdown. Although this was done to protect the country, the impact on families like hers is devastating.
Unable to work, Tania’s father, Amzad, has no way to buy food for his family, let alone essentials like soap, hand sanitiser and masks to protect them. And this is what frightens Amzad more than anything: “We will die of hunger before we die of the coronavirus. Most people who have a place to stay and can afford to are indoors. But for people like us, the choice is between safety and hunger. Which should we pick?” he says.

International aid agency, World Vision, has appealed to donors for US$10 million in additional funding, as it launched its humanitarian response to the crisis in the conflict-affected Tigray region of Ethiopia.
The foreign secretary’s speech today reinforced the government’s broken promises on overseas aid and its failure to stand with the world’s poor at a time of global crisis.
