Starting in 1950 with the Korean War, World Vision has responded to the most urgent disasters and humanitarian crises around the world, providing immediate aid.
In 1975, World Vision’s Operation Babylift evacuated 27 Vietnamese and 20 Cambodian orphans to the U.S. due to deteriorating conditions in Southeast Asia.
Vinh Chung was 3 years old when he escaped death in a small boat on the South China Sea. Now he’s working to help other children in dire circumstances.
As a recent graduate of Quang Nam Forestry College in central Vietnam, Ating Ai — a former World Vision sponsored child — is passionate about protecting woodlands and the natural environment.
32 years ago, World Vision reported the rescue story of Operation Seasweep, the boat Mr. Vinh Chung was on, in the August 1979 issue of World Vision Magazine. Mr. Chung recently retold his story, giving a fuller picture of his life after Seasweep and the miracle of God’s provision for his family.
