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.
A childhood disability fuels Premvati’s compassion for other children with a disability in India. Through World Vision programs, Premvati regained confidence and continues to serve her community’s most vulnerable.
In 2021, the world continued to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic along with wars and political unrest. Refugees and displaced peoples fled violence. Natural disasters spread destruction in their wake. But there were also small and big moments of joy to celebrate. See what World Vision’s communicators captured in this extraordinary year.
Children with disabilities face barriers that often hinder them from receiving proper nutrition, humanitarian aid, or other basic services. We believe every child deserves the chance to reach their God-given potential. Join us to pray for children with disabilities.
In a year like no other, we could all use an extra dose of joy. Why not share a little more with your loved ones this Christmas? It’s easy — with gifts that give back through the World Vision Gift Catalog. This season’s catalog features handcrafted jewelry and home décor items designed by celebrities like Sadie Robertson Huff, Patricia Heaton, Melissa Joan Hart, Wé McDonald, and Leanne Ford. Each unique gift helps empower people to rise out of poverty by meeting specific, urgent needs through the World Vision Fund. Learn the stories of the artisans behind these beautiful gifts that change lives.
