World Vision Hong Kong in Myanmar (2019)Tags：
As a nation in transition, Myanmar has been making rapid progress in development and economic growth, perhaps best indicated by the fact that the country’s poverty rate has almost halved between 2005 and 2017. However, Myanmar still needs to overcome issues such as recurring conflict and climate change. Whether the people of Myanmar will be able to share their country’s prosperity will very much depend on how it responds to these challenges.
World Vision has been working in Myanmar since 1991. With operations in 13 of the 14 states/regions, including 32 Area Development Programmes, it is one of the largest international humanitarian organisations in the country. Apart from community development work, World Vision also offers relief support to internally displaced people and rehabilitation support to areas affected by natural disasters.
In 2019, World Vision Hong Kong contributed approximately HK$23.45 million to support 4 ADPs and 6 other projects in Myanmar, benefiting over 211,000 people.
