Humanitarian Affairs

We help people affected by conflict and disasters. When disaster strikes, we are on the ground, quickly providing immediate support than any other Humanitarian Agency.


Through emergency relief, World Vision Zambia is helping people affected by conflict and disasters, natural and manmade. We partner with the Government of Zambia, through the Commissioner for Refugees, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). In recent past, World Vision Zambia has provided humanitarian assistance to over 491,000 drought affected people in Southern and Western provinces of Zambia.

Further, World Vision is working in all the three Refugee Settlements and host communities in Zambia reaching over 230,000 people with various interventions to improve their health status, psychosocial well-being and their access to basic services, such as food, shelter, water and sanitation. In 2018 alone, World Vision drilled 53 boreholes of which 4 were mechanized with solar power and tap stands to provide clean water to 15,000 individuals in Mantapala Settlement, Kenani and the host community.

Our ongoing large-scale programs enable us to respond rapidly, effectively, and efficiently. Our focus is on helping the most vulnerable children overcome poverty and experience fullness of life.
