Disaster & Refugee Relief

When disaster strikes around the world, we mobilize commodity shipments filled with emergency food, water, shelter, clothing and medical equipment and pharmaceuticals. World Children's Fund has rushed supplies to families and children around the globe who are victims of tsunamis, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wars and civil conflict. Our missions are aimed at improving the quality of life for vulnerable groups, including refugees, displaced persons and children orphaned through disasters and civil strife.

“Amputations, dead bodies piled up on the streets, a decayed leg found on the ground, the pungent smell of infection and death, crying children in severe pain…” These are the words of one of our liaisons on the ground in Port au Prince as he described the aftermath of the earthquake that rocked Haiti in January of 2010.

In times of crisis and disaster or in response to chronic poverty, malnutrition and critical need, World Children's Fund ships large forty-foot containers filled with relief supplies to suffering people all around the globe. WCF has supplied humanitarian relief to Afghanistan, Argentina, Botswana, Burkina Faso, China, Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Liberia, Macedonia, Malawi, Malaysia, Moldova, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, Romania, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, Vietnam, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

World Children’s Fund is working to combat the growing crisis in South Sudan through the implementation and funding of a medical program that treats and prevents acute malnutrition in children under the age of five and women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
