Holding out the hat for Syria
March 31, 2015

Four years since the crisis began, aid organizations are struggling to drum up funds for suffering Syrians. The international NGO World Vision, which works with the U.N.-coordinated aid operation, is just one of the organizations that has struggled to sell the crisis to donors: It has raised $2.7 million dollars in private donations for the Syria crisis over the course of four years — less than half of the $5.9 million it raised in the first week after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

The most important women's issue you've never heard of (by Rich Stearns)
March 22, 2015

While a whole community rejoices when a drilling rig hits clean water, it is the women who shout the loudest. Everyone benefits from the clean water, which can end disease and lead to better health. But it is the women — their tired arms, sore legs, and worn out backs — who are most grateful. That heavy burden has been lifted.

Clean water changes everything
March 22, 2015

In Zambia and other countries, World Vision is one of several organizations working to provide water access, sanitation, and hygiene instruction to rural and urban communities, with good results. In Ghana, for instance, World Vision’s wells work remarkably well after 20 years of use; 80 percent of them are still operational, according to a new report. That’s significantly higher than the 30–50 percent of wells typically still operational years after their installation, and World Vision says the sustainability is partly due to the community involvement they emphasize.

Vanuatu faces food shortages after Cyclone Pam devastates crops
March 19, 2015

Survivors of Cyclone Pam on the South Pacific islands of Vanuatu are bracing for a lack of food over the coming months because crops were destroyed in the recent storm. “There’s always a lot of attention in the beginning, the first few weeks of a big disaster. But now, we’re looking at a hunger gap over the next three to six months,” said World Vision’s emergency-operations manager in Vanuatu, Alex Snary. Aid agencies are rushing to deliver desperately needed supplies, especially to communities on the remote outer islands, which are still out of contact.

When we provide clean drinking water to a community, says World Vision's Dr. Greg Allgood, everything changes. Kids no longer get disease, people save money because they're not spending it on medicines, and girls can go to school because they're not walking long distances, hauling water.


New global disaster plan aims to lower deaths and losses
March 18, 2015

A new global plan to combat disasters, scheduled to be adopted in Japan on Wednesday, contains targets to substantially lower deaths and the number of people affected, as well as curb economic losses. Some aid workers regretted that the new global plan did not focus enough on to how to improve lives in the most vulnerable communities. "At the moment, we're saying that it's all about the resilience of the system and the governments and the international agreements, and we have lost sight of the people," said Richard Rumsey, director of disaster risk reduction with World Vision International.

Do you need a broken heart?
March 17, 2015

In my travels with World Vision, I see small, hungry children like those living in tunnels under the streets of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. I am certain that I’ll never forget their thin little bodies or the look of hopelessness in their eyes. I’m determined to remember the stories of how, homeless and abandoned, they seek shelter from the freezing temperatures of the harsh Mongolian winters by living underground in tunnels dug to house the city’s steam pipes.

Pacific nation devastated by historic Cyclone Pam
March 15, 2015

The huge cyclone, as hurricanes are called in the Pacific, hit Vanuatu dead-center after a last-minute change of course to the west. Chloe Morrison, a World Vision emergency communications officer in Port Vila, said the aid group was unable to account for many of its 76 staff members on the islands. She said she's hearing reports of entire villages being destroyed in more remote areas, but that poor communications have made it difficult to make a full assessment.

March 14, 2015

The mayhem of Tropical Cyclone Pam, one of the most powerful storms ever to make landfall, is gone, but the misery it left behind in the islands of Vanuatu is just becoming apparent. "Port Vila looks like an absolute bomb has hit it," World Vision emergency specialist Chloe Morrison said. Trees blocked the path of Morrison's vehicle as she drove around the capital. "They've fallen across in piles so high in some places you can barely see over the top," she said.
