Thanks to the generous support of donors, we’re making great progress toward the well-being of children and their families. These are a few of the areas we focused on in the past year:
On September 28, 2018, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, triggering a tsunami. More than 4,000 people lost their lives and over 10,000 were injured. Tens of thousands of homes collapsed, along with parts of hospitals and places of worship.
In Palu community, where Canadians sponsor 2,000 children, the impact of the earthquake was particularly significant. In response to the devastation, World Vision has worked tirelessly across the area to support children and families:
Our support with the post-earthquake recovery in Palu will be ongoing but all sponsorship operations are now back up and running.
To protect the privacy of children, this map shows only the general area of the community, not the exact location.
Palu, is in Phase 2
With local leaders, we assess the community's needs and resources, plan projects to provide long term solutions. Sponsorship and development opportunities begin.
We monitor progress and make adjustments to meet goals. More community members become involved, lead projects and gain ownership of their success.
Children and families enjoy improved living conditions. They're ready to become independent and continue the work you helped start. We invite you to help another child and community!
