When an Emergency Strikes, We Act Immediately

For a child who already lives on the edge, a new crisis makes their life almost impossible. They need extra help. And they need it fast.

We are there immediately with what they need.

We have staff and partners on the ground wherever we provide emergency aid. This gives us a deep understanding of the pre-existing conditions and how they’ll be affected by a new emergency. And it enables us to assess and change what’s needed as the situation evolves.

We also have a dedicated base of supporters who know we’re a safe pair of hands in an emergency. They’ve seen the impact of our work and never fail to respond with generosity when asked.

In their words…

I am so lucky to get this emergency food support. Now, I can see happiness and joy on the face of my children and strength and stability in their emotion. It changed our worry and sadness into joy and hope. —Genet Mother of Sponsored Child, Ethiopia
We received 20 bars of soap, one quintal flour, and 61 kg of Teff as emergency support. It was a great chance for us to manage our lives successfully! And if Wide Horizons for Children had not provided us with support, it would have been difficult to save the lives of our family members. —Messeret Mother of Sponsored Child, Ethiopia
Due to COVID-19 we were living under difficult condition because my mother was not able to do her daily work. But your help and support through WHFC enable us to safe at this hard time. With your support we are provided different food items such as flour, macaroni, oil, hand sanitizer and face masks. We are very happy for your support. —Natnael Sponsored Child, Ethiopia
I am thankful for the ration as it was very useful and helpful for me and my family. Thank you for it. —Suhani Sponsored Child, India
The donations provided are fundamental for covering the Home’s operational expenses, as they are used to pay rent, salaries of staff and professionals, and food for the children currently living at the Home as well as other significant expenses without which we would not be able to operate. It is because of this, that without your support, we could not exist or provide the support and care that we currently provide to the children. —Dinora Orphanage Director, Guatemala
