World Vision is a Christian relief, development, and advocacy organization working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families, and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Inspired by our Christian values, World Vision is dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. We work in the areas of community development, as well as humanitarian assistance and emergency response. When families are forced from their homes by war or conflict, we advocate with governments and world bodies. When refugee families reach Canada, we partner with local organizations to provide support for children and families, helping them settle and thrive in Canadian communities. World Vision’s focus is on the protection, care and nurture of children, so that they can reach their God-given potential.
World Vision Canada will be focusing on several key fundraising initiatives for the World Refugee Day campaign. Canadians will be encouraged to make a monthly pledge through our Raw Hope campaign, purchase a baby kit through World Vision’s gift catalogue, or make a financial contribution to our Syria donation fund which supports Syrian Refugees. All of these fundraising initiatives support children and families in Afghanistan, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Syria.
