Let's share under the pandemic!The red packets that we receive during Chinese New Year mean more than just money but sincere blessings. This year, will you consider spreading some positive vibes under the pandemic by sharing the blessings you receive?
Your red packet to celebrate their lives
"Now he's good!" a nutrition centre volunteer cries excitedly after weighing John. This joy does not come by easily, as John was once so weak that he could barely stay awake.
Nine-month-old John was one of the over one million children suffering from hunger and malnutrition in South Sudan. His mother, Wilma, relied on odd jobs to earn a little money to provide food for the family. With the help of World Vision, Wilma has been able to not only attend different kinds of trainings, but also receive cash vouchers of US$45 each month, which enable her to buy food and necessities on her own with dignity. "I've learned how to cook nutritious food and even started my small business of selling peanuts on the roadside. I am now able to take better care of my son," says Wilma thankfully.
Since then, John's health condition has been showing signs of improvement, starting to gain weight, sit on his own, and smile at other babies. This day that he is declared recovered, he shows everyone in the nutrition centre how he can stand on his own, grinning widely as he receives blessings from people around, reminding us that life is indeed a miracle to celebrate!Your little red packet can bring huge blessings! Will you share your red packet with other impoverished children, so that they can experience the miracle of life like John?
Battling flooding, locusts and coronavirus at the same time...
World Vision has been implementing various projects in South Sudan and Somalia to better the lives of vulnerable children and families. To improve the nutrition of children, we provide impoverished families with food vouchers so that they can purchase fresh food on their own with dignity. We also organize cooking demonstrations in the communities to educate the mothers on the appropriate cooking methods and combinations of ingredients.
Support 1 lactating mother with fresh food vouchers for 1-month consumption
