World Vision responds to departure of Priti Patel


World Vision UK is calling for an International Development Secretary who will prioritise the world’s most vulnerable children – not simply court those in power.

Gavin Crowden, World Vision UK’s Head of Policy, Advocacy and Campaigns, said: “The Prime Minister must now ensure that British aid transforms the lives of vulnerable children around the world.

“Priti Patel’s successor must demonstrate real leadership and an understanding of - and sensitivity to - the international development context. It is vital that Britain leads the world in building a better future for vulnerable children and their communities.”
