Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on World Vision operations

In support of public health recommendations outlined by the World Health Organization, some sponsorship program activities have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Activities may include sponsor queries and correspondence, sponsor visits, gift notifications and gift deliveries. These temporary suspensions may affect the information you receive from us in the coming weeks and months.

China has benefitted from a rapidly growing economy but child poverty in China remains a persistent issue, especially in rural areas. World Vision invests in child development through education and health support and supporting small scale infrastructure projects in water and sanitation systems.

Child rights and protection is another priority. Parents are learning about raising their children in safe and nurturing environments, and children and youth are participating in local decisions that affect their lives. We’ve also launched programs to care for children left behind when their parents migrate to cities to find jobs—a common practice in rural areas where work is scarce.
