Our disaster response: First in, last out

People living in poverty are more vulnerable when disasters strike. With over 90 percent of deaths caused by natural disasters occurring in developing countries, World Vision's community development approach is essential to strengthening communities in advance of disasters. But we're also pre-positioned to respond so we can start our relief work immediately when a disaster strikes.

Today's infographic shows how our disaster response works.
