Update on World Vision’s Humanitarian Assistance to Typhoon Haiyan Victims (5 Mar 2014)
World Vision aims to assist 750,000 people and more than 687,000 victims have been reached to date. Presently, response in many affected areas is moving from immediate relief provision to the recovery phase of providing transition support. It hopes to reach about 14,000 households to support multi-sector needs in shelter, water sanitation and hygiene, and livelihood. Education and community infrastructure needs will also be addressed.
Critical Aid being Delivered in Response to the Syrian Crisis
World Vision has been providing aid to Syrians living in refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon, and those suffering within their homeland. As the conflict shows no signs of abating, affected children and families’ humanitarian needs continue to mount and many are still unmet. Children are especially vulnerable as a whole generation has been lost to displacement, poverty and labour.
