Matthew 25: Pray for children with disabilities

In developing countries, children with disabilities are often unable to attend school, play outside, communicate, be included in the community, or get access to specialized resources and care. They can become isolated, lonely, and may have little hope for the future.

World Vision seeks to address these barriers by ensuring children have equal access to healthcare and educational opportunities, helping children have a voice in community affairs, and training their parents and community leaders to help eliminate stigma toward children with disabilities.

How World Vision does child protection around the world

More than half of the world’s children experience some form of violence every year. World Vision protects children and looks out
 for their well-being by ensuring communities and faith leaders 
are actively working to identify 
and support children in need; advocating for children’s rights; and providing for immediate needs, such as emergency shelter and essential care.

Matthew 25: Pray for U.S. children and families in need

The National Center on Family Homelessness reports that in 2013 1 in 30 children in the U.S. — a historic high — were living on the street, in homeless shelters or motels, or doubling up with other families. The number of homeless children increased 64 percent between 2010 and 2013 (1.6 million to 2.5 million). This month, join us as we pray for U.S. children and families living in poverty.
