World Vision's media relations team provides journalists and bloggers with information, story ideas, expert interviews, photos, b-roll and other resources on issues of poverty and injustice.
This weekend, World Vision will launch “Famine for One,” a new effort to fight global hunger designed for college students.
This weekend, John Brown University will host its annual shelter design competition to build a transitional shelter for refugees. This year the prototypes must meet the needs of Syrian refugees living in camps along the Syrian borders of Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan.
Azraq, a new refugee camp, will open near Amman, Jordan at the end of April. It has the capacity to host up to 130,000 people, which would make it one of the world's largest. World Vision calls the opening sad but significant.
Renewed fighting has broken out in several cities in South Sudan, including the border town of Renk where many internally displace people relocated due to the stability in the area, reports World Vision.
Without urgent funding in the next few weeks, seven million children and families will be at risk of starvation in South Sudan, as violent conflict rages on.
Children whose human rights have been violated will be able to bring their grievances directly to the United Nations after a historic international treaty entered into force today. However, World Vision is calling on more nations to ratify the treaty.
