Dip your feet in Charity this New Year Bring Hope to South Sudanese children

During Chinese New Year, happiness and blessings filled the city. Family, friends and co-workers come together to celebrate another new beginning: enjoying the abundance of food, red packets, and greeting one another. But to many Indian children, happiness simply means drinking clean water, enjoying a nutritious meal and being able to go to school.

This New Year, join Spring Charity Barefoot Walk for Children, one of World Vision’s Famine activities, to raise funds for Indian children by walking barefoot! Support the great cause with family and friends to truly embrace our abundance by sharing and blessing others!

Despite its remarkable economic achievements in recent years, malnutrition among children is still a main concern in India. Almost half of under-five children in India are stunted, meaning they do not reach the adequate height of their age due to chronic malnutrition. While poverty is one of the factors leading to malnutrition, a lack of nutrition knowledge and improper feeding practices could also affect the growth of a child.

The funds you raise together with other donations received from World Vision’s Famine activities will support child health and nutrition projects in India, benefiting over 200,000 people. It will help improve access to healthcare services, and provide adequate training and knowledge for mothers to better care for children to reduce malnutrition.

HK$500

can support 13 malnourished children to receive regular growth monitoring for 1 year

HK$1,800

can educate 6 pregnant mothers on child health

HK$6,000

can train 55 caregivers in preparing nutritious meals for malnourished children
