Christmas Appeal

Millions of children struggle to survive on the streets.

We urgently need you to help vulnerable children who will be homeless this Christmas.

Your gift can help them find the safety and comfort they need.

Thank you for giving what you can.

Across the world, millions of children are forced to live on the streets. Their health is at risk, their childhood wasted, their future bleak.

Thiri spent four years living on the roadside in an abusive environment. She lost everything when the authorities cleared away her settlement and had no way to return to school. Without the help and support she needed, Thiri had no-one to turn to and was desperate. But thankfully, she found a safe refuge at one of World Vision drop-in centres.

Please help a child find a home this Christmas. Your gift today will mean that homeless children will:

  • Get the support and care they need at a drop-in centre, including essential medical care, hygiene and nutritious meals
  • Receive vocational training and education, which will give them renewed hope in their future
  • Be reunited with family members they can trust

Your support can change the lives of vulnerable children for good.

Thiri found the help she needed at a drop-in centre, and she was later reunited with her aunt, who looks after as her own daughter. But millions of other children are still at risk.

You can help re-write the futures of children like Thiri. Thank you.
