I was compensated by World Vision for my time in writing this post. All opinions are my own.
There are so many tragic circumstances and hardships around the world. It makes me so grateful for all that I have. In some parts of the world, there are families that have to worry about where they will get their next meal and how they will get fresh water. Some countries are struggling to build back after a natural disaster. It breaks my heart to think of these children having to worry about all the things that we take for granted. As a mom, my heart breaks for the parents who struggle to provide and keep their kids safe. I am proud to be working with World Vision to share a bit about what they do and how you can also help.
World Vision has a mission to make the world a better place. They are a Christian humanitarian organization that is dedicated to to working with families and their communities around the world to reach their fullest potential. They are trying to tackle the causes of poverty and injustice. Working with nearly 100 countries around the world, no matter of religion, race, ethnicity or gender, World Vision provides emergency assistance to families who may have been affected to disaster and conflict. They, then, partner with the communities for long-term solutions to help alleviate poverty.
How does World Vision help? It is by simple gift giving. are looking Whenever you are seeking special and meaningful presents for friends and loved ones, you can order gifts from the gift catalog. These types of gifts can be hand made gifts, gifts of animals, clean water, gifts specific to women and girls, or focus on needs in America. These small gifts, that cost so little to us, can mean the world to someone in these areas of need. Take Dulamsuren from Mongolia.
She is a sign of hope to the future. Dulamsuren is a sweet girl from Mongolia and one of the many children who has been helped by World Vision. Her family is a semi-nomadic family of herders. In 2015, Dulamsuren was one of the World Vision gift catalog’s cover girls. Dulamsuren moves with her family 4 times a year, during the Mongolian winter, called zud, and to protect their herds from predators. Some zuds can be particularly bad and in 2002, the zud left the family destitute. This is a real possibility each year for the 300,000 nomadic herders each year.
Dulamsuren’s story is similar to many children living in communities like this one. Young girls face challenges like these all over the world. But there can be a bright promise for children. World Vision.
Another way to help is to sponsor a child through World Vision. A child like Dulamsuren. You can do something so small that makes such a huge, sometimes life-saving, impact in a child’s life. With the World Vision child sponsorship model, there is a one-on-one relationship with the sponsor. These donations are not a hand out, it is a hand up. Gifts from all of the sponsors who support children in the same community so that there can be a lasting change for the better. The donations are a way to help the children, and their community be more self sufficient, by providing tools and training.
You can search for a child to sponsor at the bottom of this post.
World Vision child sponsorship is an amazing model that allows for a one-on-one relationship with a sponsor, while pooling the gifts of all sponsors who support children in the same community so that we are able to provide long-term resources for lasting change.
