World Vision in Asia-Pacific, has been responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, since February 2020, starting with China and scaling up its response, across the region, as the virus spread transcending borders, to include all 17 country offices. In the relief phase of the response, World Vision has reached over 8,234,000 people and over 3,919,000 children.
Moving forward to the recovery phase, WV conducted a Recovery Assessment, in nine countries across Asia: Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, and Sri Lanka to better understand the socio-economic impact of COVID-19 on the lives of vulnerable children, in Asia, and better inform its response journey ahead.
The key findings of the Rapid Recovery Assessment will enable WV programmes to better meet the needs of our most important stakeholder, the most vulnerable children, and amplify their voices, in a broader regional and global arena.
The Rapid Recovery Assessment is based on the quantitative and qualitative primary data collected from parents and caregivers, children, and key informants at community levels, including community leaders, children groups, youth groups, government representatives, women’s groups, faith leaders, and CBOs.
