Where we work

Support children in Asia

We tackle the big issues

World Vision works with communities across Asia to tackle long term challenges like child protection, malnutrition and lack of income to ensure that every child has the hope of a better life. We work in seven countries, empowering children to know their rights, and supporting communities to lead their own development so that progress made is sustained, and continues, long after we’ve left.

We also use our expertise and local connections to respond rapidly to emergencies in the region, like the Nepal earthquake in 2015 and the ongoing crisis of providing food and support to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, in the world’s biggest refugee camp.

Sponsor a child in Asia

Child Sponsorship is a unique relationship that brings real hope and a life-affirming experience. When you sponsor a child, you’ll help them move from surviving to thriving. We identify the child’s core needs and use your donation to provide these, keeping you updated on their progress all the way.

Protect children in the most dangerous places in Asia

World Vision has a presence in almost 100 countries so we can act quickly to help children. We help them to survive by providing essentials like food, water and shelter; to recover from trauma they experienced, and to rebuild their future. This lifesaving work is only possible because generous individuals support Childhood Rescue with regular donations, meaning we can support children when their need is greatest.

Responding to emergencies

World Vision in action

Your support and World Vision’s reach have been vital during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are distributing food to 54,200 Rohingya refugee households in collaboration with the World Food Programme, for those living in the world’s largest refugee camp in Bangladesh. Not legally permitted to work in the camps and with little space to grow food, the refugees remain dependent on food assistance.

When the COVD-19 crisis hit, it became even more essential to ensure that refugees were educated and encouraged to follow hygiene and distancing measures to prevent the spread of the virus. We identified volunteers who participated in training about COVID-19 prevention—information that they are passing on to their neighbours.

Thanks to World Vision supporters, we can provide essential food to families and help train volunteers to keep people safe, even in the most difficult of circumstances.
