60 Years Spreading Hope

World Vision Hong Kong enters its 60th anniversary in 2022. This all started with a storm in 1962, when Typhoon Wanda struck. World Vision distributed relief supplies in Hong Kong, and later began to provide sponsorships for grassroots children as there was a need for education. In 1982, World Vision Hong Kong turned itself into a fundraising office. Since then, we began to transition from providing assistance for local families to gathering the general public’s care and resources to support communities in need worldwide and spread hope.

For the past 60 years, we are truly grateful for every donor, supporter and partner. By supporting our relief and development work, you have instilled unending hope for children, families and communities in need across the world.


A Call for Entries: Share Your World Vision Story of Hope

Maybe it is a vision trip to a poor community, a particular 30-Hour Famine event, or interactions with your sponsored child. When you look back on your experience of partnering with World Vision, is there a moment that immediately comes to mind or stands out for you?

Whatever that is, we invite you to share it with us. Tell us your story, share hope, and shed light on other people’s lives. You can even win a prize if your work is one of the first ten submissions or is chosen by the public as winner of the Most Hopeful Award!
