At World Children's Fund, we support both long-term and immediate intervention to meet the health care needs of orphans, vulnerable children and families. Since our inception, we have fed thousands of hungry children through our life-saving nutritional feeding programs located in the poorest corners of the world. WCF also supports projects that provide maternal and child health care services, as well as community based health care to serve those living in impoverished geographic areas that would otherwise go without access to medical treatment.

Many of our programs provide meals to vulnerable children in educational settings. Receiving food while at school helps to eradicate hunger and promotes school enrollment and retention. It also eliminates the need for vulnerable and orphaned children to beg on the streets to survive. Other WCF supported programs target children living in slum areas. An estimated one billion people worldwide live in slums. By 2030, the number is expected to increase to two billion people. Slums are filled with disease, garbage and unsanitary conditions like animal and human waste. They are also overflowing with very hungry children.

World Children's Fund supports nutritional feeding programs that provide one meal a day for thousands of children living in slums who are relegated to a life of poverty.

Your generosity is filling bellies and saving lives.

According to the World Health Organization, transmission rates are as high as 45%. In addition to inheriting a life-threatening illness, many of these same children become orphans. An estimated 17 million children have lost one or both parents because of HIV/AIDS. World Children's fund intervenes in the plight of orphans innocently affected with HIV to assure food security, shelter, access to medical care, education, economic opportunity and to shield these blameless children from discrimination and exploitation.

At World Children's Fund, we believe every child deserves a chance at life.
