Three Reasons To Donate To World Vision
- If you care about children that have been orphaned as result of civil war or AIDS, then you should sponsor a child with World Vision. The organisation focuses a lot of its efforts in ensuring that children that have been orphaned can lead relatively normal lives despite some of the horrors they may have experienced. Sponsor a child with World Vision and do something good for a child who could really use the help.
- Give the gift of a World Vision child sponsorship to someone you care about. We guarantee the recipient will be extremely happy you thought of them in such a charitable way. People really appreciate acts of charity, but when you do an act of charity in someone else’s name, that person will really love the fact. So if you are wondering what to get someone for their birthday or Christmas, why not sponsor a child with World Vision?
- You will feel great when you make a charitable donation. Donating to a charity like World Vision is guaranteed to make you feel good about yourself. Not only will you be helping make the world a better place for children, but you will be helping World Vision have a lasting impact on the communities it works with.
About World Vision
World Vision is an Evangelical Christian humanitarian development and aid agency. The organisation was started by Reverend Robert Pierce as World Vision Inc in 1950 to support the emergency needs of missionaries. Initially the charity only worked in the United States but by 1966 it had expanded into many other countries. In 1977 Walter Stanley Mooneyham, then president of World Vision Inc founded the international arm and dubbed it World Vision International.
During the 1970’s World Vision started a training programme designed to teach families how to build small farms. The programme started off by teaching agricultural skills that were designed to make a lasting impact in the communities World Vision was helping by promoting self-reliance. World Vision also started installing water pumps in these communities which produced clean water and resulted in the infant mortality rate to drop. As a result of that success volunteers from the organisation make use of clean water to teach vulnerable communities how to garden and irrigate their farms.
Importance of AIDS education
During the 1990’s World Vision turned its attention to the requirements of orphaned children living in Somalia, Romania and Uganda in response to the AIDS crisis, civil war and neglect. After realising how important it was to educate communities on AIDS, World Vision began educating other African communities. World Vision also participates in United Nations peace keeping efforts, so that it can deliver aid to people that have been affected by civil war.
