Why World Vision is in China
For over 24 years, World Vision has had a presence in the country of China, operating in four area programs throughout the region and bringing positive change in the lives of more than 12,000 children and their families, including access to education, protection, sustainable income generation, food and better care within their homes and communities. These achievements were made in mutually respectful collaboration with government institutions, partner organizations, donors, and children and their communities. World Vision US is currently working in any communities in China and recently ended its Sponsorship operations in the North China Plain Region. World Vision is grateful for our time in China spent partnering with children, families, and communities. The future is bright as local community members and partners continue carrying forward the good work.
We never give up on people
With so much happening around the world, it can be hard to decide where your money can have the greatest impact. With your help through the Where Most Needed fund, we can respond quickly to urgent needs of the world's most vulnerable children and families. And, thanks to grant funds and donated products, your monthly gifts multiply 4 times in impact.
Prayer Requests from China
World Vision's staff in China are asking us to join them in prayer for the following:
For the 100 million children affected by urban migration who are living without their parents and are more vulnerable to harm, and that World Vision would be a channel of love and hope to them.
For the well-being of children with disabilities, that they’ll be protected from COVID-19 and that local social services would be equipped to care for them well.
For God to grant the leaders of Colombia wisdom to make fullness of life for children a reality, especially through the resolution of the violent social unrest and the migratory crisis.
News from China
World Vision is committed to help bridge barriers for vulnerable people who face each day with a disability. As we take steps to do so, we reflect on powerful moments and stories brought about through our work.
Everywhere World Vision works, a priority for us is strengthening healthcare systems and workers, with partnerships ranging from one-room health clinics to national ministries of health. It’s also one of the four key objectives of our global coronavirus response.
