With floods in several states of India, including Assam, West Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat, lakhs of people are left helpless and vulnerable.


IHundreds of villages are under water and hectares of crop areas are completely destroyed. The devastating floods have already claimed several lives and left thousands homeless. We are on the ground providing immediate help to those affected. Children and families are in need of emergency supplies such as water, rice, lentils, cooking oil, salt, hygiene kit, rice pot, curry pot, spoons, bed sheets and tarpaulin sheets.


Our team is working tirelessly to provide emergency assistance in worst-hit areas.


There is still so much to be done, and we need your support. Please help us respond to the needs of children and families affected by floods.

Help Meet Urgent Needs. Save Lives.

First-in, last-out approach

Whenever disaster strikes, natural or man-made, World Vision India generally follows the first-in and last-out approach. Our rapid response team reaches the ground within 24 hours the disaster strikes. Our work begins by assessing the extent of the damage and providing immediate emergency relief. For the first few weeks, we continuously distribute emergency aid and relief to residents affected by the disaster.


Over the following months, we help families stabilize by providing non-food items and livelihood support. We set up child-friendly spaces to provide children with a caring and safe environment.


Our staff remain with the communities until the families have recovered and are ready/able to start life again.


Our Response Team caters to the immediate needs of the affected population and adheres to the industry standards. Camps and the beneficiaries are identified on the basis of need alone.
