What our supporters say

The power of giving

Renee describes supporting Maureen from Kenya as the best decision she's every made. She's experienced a true transformation, not just in Maureen's life, but in her own. 

“It’s amazing! It’s changed my life in so many ways. It’s helped me to be a better person and be able to give and have someone be part of my family – I have a true sister in another country who gives me so much in ways she doesn’t even know about,” says Renee.

“I can see her smile has changed from her first photo – she had just a little smile then. In her next photo, her smile was a little brighter. I can see her changing from maybe being a little bit shy to being a bit more outgoing. She’s telling me more in her letters too, so I can see her changing from the inside, out.”

“She’s going to school for the first time this year, so that’s really exciting. I got a photo of her in her school dress looking so excited. The health of the community is in good condition despite COVID-19. I know that World Vision is – we are – really working hard to do more, be more and give more to the community."

How supporters are changing lives

We're called to go where we are needed most, to some of the world's harshest places. Thanks to supporters, we can focus on protecting children from violence and harm, empowering families by tackling the roots of their poverty, and responding to peoples' urgent needs when tragedy strikes. Because we can rely on the generosity of supporters, we can work with communities for years, helping people to call for their rights, and making sure that progress can be maintained after we leave.
