More about your donation

  • Over 95 per cent of World Vision staff are local to the countries and communities they serve. Employing local manpower is also a way to build up stronger communities.

  • World Vision is committed to publishing the results of our work in impact reports and annual reports. In addition, we share with you the real life stories of all those involved: the field workers and the beneficiary families so you can see the change for yourself. Check back anytime to read about the impact in the life of the people you're helping.

  • World Vision takes pride in the fact that we have been helping the most vulnerable communities around the world for 70 years in almost 100 countries. Thanks to our structure of operating end to end, we can account for every penny donated to our programmes.

  • The conditions in fragile countries are highly unstable. New threats can arise at a moment's notice, so we need to be prepared to pivot our plans and create new activities quickly. Flexible funding allows our field offices to be the most effective in their response.
