World Vision is committed to serving the vulnerable and poor. Our work includes emergency relief as well as sustainable development programmes that address the needs of the poor at different times by providing appropriate assistance and support. Locally, we organise advocacy campaigns and activities to raise awareness of global issues. We also care for the needs of vulnerable local families and children and provide them with practical support through our local programmes.
When disaster strikes, victims in poor areas often suffer heavy losses; they cannot afford the cost of rebuilding their homes and communities. World Vision responds immediately by providing basic necessities to ease the desperate situation for the affected and following with rehabilitation work.
To improve the lives of poverty stricken children, we must first improve their living conditions. World Vision pools together donations from Child Sponsorship, VisionFund, Project Support, World Vision China and works alongside communities to address the root causes of poverty and support families to become self-reliant in the long run.
World Vision Hong Kong organises large-scale advocacy activities and promotes a variety of educational activities in schools, business corporations and churches to raise public awareness about poverty and gather more resources to help transform the lives of needy children and families.
In view of the impact that COVID-19 has left on the daily life and studies of many grass-roots children and families, World Vision is collaborating with several local charities for the grass-roots and vulnerable communities, by supporting their related projects to provide practical help and care for families in need.
