“Share and Care” Scheme

As COVID-19 remains a risk for the entire world, the local economy has also experienced a severe hit, which is now threatening the livelihoods of grass-roots families. Moreover, children's physical and mental development, as well as their studies, have been hindered because of their families' economic pressure and the constraint that they are home-bound during the pandemic. Therefore, having implemented its “Share and Support” Scheme in 2020, through which grass-roots families and vulnerable communities were provided with personal protective equipment , World Vision again partners with local charities, sponsoring and collaborating to implement the brand new “Share and Care” Scheme in 2021. By providing practical livelihood and psychosocial support for children and families affected by the pandemic, we hope that they can feel loved and embrace hope even in such challenging times. Volunteers will participate in the implementation of the different projects to fight the pandemic together with children and families. World Vision will regularly monitor and review the progress and effectiveness of the scheme.
