Update on World Vision’s Humanitarian Assistance to Typhoon Haiyan Victims (19 Feb 2014)
Presently, response in many affected areas is moving from immediate relief provision to the recovery phase of providing transition support. World Vision aims to narrow down its geographic focus to cities, and municipalities of Leyte, Panay and North Cebu. It hopes to reach about 14,000 households to support multi-sector needs in shelter, water sanitation and hygiene, and livelihood. Education and infrastructure needs will also be addressed at the community level.

Walking in her father's footsteps, Marilee Pierce-Dunker will share how we can systematically be part of the solution to help women and children to step out of the vicious cycle of poverty.
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.
