Working With Children in Philippines

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.

Other priorities for children in the Philippines are child protection, education, health and nutrition and economic empowerment. World Vision Philippines promotes thriving communities where peace and justice prevail and all can enjoy security, opportunity and happiness. We do this by coming alongside the poor and vulnerable, building their capacity to be agents of sustainable change.
