Children in Crisis

World Vision is deeply concerned about children who are the silent sufferers of the current socio-political and economic crisis in Sri Lanka, compounded by the aftershocks of the COVID-19 pandemic and a terrorist attack that has severely crippled the country.

As the conflict in Ukraine enters its second month, the humanitarian catastrophe in Afghanistan is quickly becoming a forgotten crisis. The gains achieved over the past two decades – including women’s rights and education for all - are now at risk more than ever.
