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. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.
In 2020, the community transitioned from sponsorship to self-sufficiency and World Vision is no longer on site. Because of the dedication and partnership of Canadians like you, local people and organizations have been equipped to continue leading the community’s development – and that is something to celebrate!  

With the help of your generous and loving support, life in Anyima-Mansie has transformed. Children and families are much stronger now. The community has met its goals, and its members are working together to tackles new ones. Your support will have a lasting impact for years to come.

Anyima-Mansie (pronounced An-ee-mah Man-see) is a rural community 460 kilometres from Accra, Ghana's capital city. With average temperatures of 24℃ in August and 30℃; in March, this area has a wet, semi-equatorial climate. The landscape has scattered trees and some forested areas along the banks of rivers and streams. Most families in this community of 37,300 live in traditional grass-thatched homes with mud-brick walls.

They practice subsistence farming, growing crops such as cassava, yams, and maize, and raising cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, and poultry. In some areas, intense human activity and bushfires have severely depleted trees and other vegetation. In the rainy season, families can face torrential rainfall that often cuts off villages due to the poor road network.
Thanks to the generosity of Canadian sponsors like you, life in Anyima-Mansie has improved. Your support will have a lasting impact for years to come. Let’s celebrate these accomplishments!
