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.
Daily violence is a reality for children in Jerusalem/West Bank/Gaza communities. Amidst the conflicts, families struggle to make a living and children do their best to continue their education.
 

World Vision helps communities through projects that generate food and income, such as agricultural cooperatives, savings groups and small business support. Schools are equipped with new resources, such as science labs, computer resource centres, libraries and sports facilities. To address mental health concerns for orphaned and distressed children, safe spaces and summer camps are supported. By empowering children to overcome trauma, we encourage their hope and vision for the future.
