World Vision Hong Kong in Mongolia (2015)Tags：
Mongolia established a multi-party system and began developing its economy since 1992 but it has been a bumpy road. The government estimates that 67% of its population moved to urban areas and, mostly, to capital Ulaanbaatar before 2012. Social welfare, infrastructure, employment and housing are unable to meet the needs of the growing population in cities. The well-being of children has been greatly affected by poverty, alcohol addiction of family members, domestic violence, and lack of water and sanitation facilities.
World Vision began its work in Mongolia in 1991 to provide medical resources for clinics and hospitals. In 1993, World Vision launched an emergency relief to respond to severe snowstorm. World Vision opened its Mongolia office in 1995 and has been implementing development projects across the country. There are now 33 Area Development Programmes (ADPs) today.
In 2015, World Vision Hong Kong contributed approximately HK$23.94 million to support 5 ADPs and 4 other projects in Mongolia, benefiting over 270,000 people.
