World Vision’s Gift Catalogue to bring blessings to vulnerable children Gifts range from remedial education to psychological support

Christmas is just around the corner. As you look for gifts for friends and family, World Vision would like to offer a thoughtful option that will please your friends and bring practical help and blessings to vulnerable children worldwide.

Over 1 billion children in this world experience some form of violence every year. Some have been deeply affected by military conflicts in where they live, while others have been forced to become child labourers because of poverty, effectively being deprived of childhood. This Christmas, World Vision encourages the public to spread love through its Gift Catalogue, reaching out a helping hand to children in need, as well as turning this generosity into a Christmas gift for friends and family, who will also experience the joy that comes from helping others!

This year’s World Vision Gift Catalogue consists of 27 gifts, including several special and meaningful new additions:

  • Remedial education for 1 child worker for $120
  • Psychosocial support for 1 child affected by conflict for $150
  • Treatment for 1 malnourished child for $280

Other gifts include drought-tolerant hybrid seeds, chicks/ducklings, rickshaw vans, girl-friendly latrines, etc., which will help improve the livelihood and living conditions of impoverished families and communities (please refer to the website below for details).

In addition to giving gifts yourself, you may also give on behalf of your friends and family. You can inform them of this and share the joy with them by making use of our print-out cards or e-cards. The cards are beautifully designed and include a picture and description of your gift.

World Vision invites the public to become child sponsors to help transform the lives of needy children and communities, bringing them food, education opportunities, healthcare, love and protection.
