Location: Ukraine and Western Europe
Impact Area: Orphan Care, Education, Medical, Shelter, And Emergency Aid for displaced Ukrainian families
For more than a decade WCF has supported a network of more than twenty orphan centers in Ukraine. Beginning in February of 2022 as Russia began its full-scale invasion and bombing campaign, WCF began working with ground teams to evacuate orphans and their caregivers from Ukraine. WCF is committed to evacuating as many children as possible to safety and continuing to provide aid and financial support during this crisis.
Location: Buchanan, Liberia; Multiple Sites
Impact Area: Feeding, Education
World Children’s Fund supports the feeding of more than 1200 children each weekday in the west African nation of Liberia. These impoverished children no longer suffer from the pain of empty bellies and can attend school.
Impact Area: Vocational training
WCF supports training programs for the refugee population living in the Kiryandongo settlement. The programs are also open to the local Ugandan host community of Bweyale. The vocational training allows adults lacking education and job skills to attain greater financial independence.
Location: Tororo, Uganda
Impact Area: Education
WCF is providing a pathway to a brighter future for students who are orphaned and vulnerable. The WCF Mama Kevina school offers an excellent education in a safe living and learning environment.
Location: South Sudan
Impact Area: Combatting Food Insecurity
World Children’s Fund is responding to the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan and the alarming levels of food insecurity through the distribution of emergency food aid. WCF initiatives target hungry and vulnerable populations living in the Central Equatoria State, where South Sudan’s capital city of Juba is located.
Impact Area: Orphan Care, Medical, Shelter, Feeding, Education
World Children’s Fund supports children in Kenya living with HIV. These programs offer holistic care. Advances in treatment, as well as funding for antiretroviral medication gives children hope and the possibility of an indefinite lifespan. Orphans and vulnerable children living with HIV are lovingly guided into self-sustaining adults who are integrated into the community and live full lives.
Impact area: Orphan Care, Shelter, Feeding, Education, Medical, Child Protection
After the death of their parents, many orphaned children have no one to care for them. Children do not want to be separated from their siblings and will continue trying to survive together. They have no supervision. They are vulnerable. They drop out of school and are forced into exploitative and dangerous work for their survival. Because of generous donor support, orphaned and vulnerable children in Mozambique have a safe place to call home and a comprehensive program that meets their daily emotional and physical needs.
Location: Phuket, Thailand
Impact Area: Feeding, Education, Housing
WCF provides educational opportunities and food relief for impoverished Thai families. After completion of the pre-school program, children often become scholarship students progressing through school and on to university or vocation training.
Impact Area: Disaster, Refugee and Humanitarian Services
World Children’s Fund dispatches an estimated ten million dollars in value each year of emergency shipments containing food, medical equipment, supplies and pharmaceuticals.
