WORLD VISION: Changing the stories. Changing lives.
World Vision knows that statistics on hunger are shocking, but they are just numbers. They don’t tell the stories. Children are debilitated by hunger in numerous ways: failure to thrive, physical abnormalities, vulnerability to disease, and delayed neurological, cognitive, and social development. As one teacher in South Africa lamented, “Many of my kids won’t graduate from school, because they were hungry as children.”
Worldwide, over 800 million people go to bed hungry every night. In India, a country that has demonstrated economic success, 40% of all children under age 5 are undernourished and/or underweight. In war-torn South Sudan and Syria, 75% of the children are chronically malnourished. Real numbers. Real stories.
World Vision programs ensure that children in over 75 countries have access to enough nutritional food to combat the side effects of hunger. In collaboration with governments and NGOs, they are able to increase your contribution four times. Imagine this. For every $100.00 you spend on this site, ziggie puts $10.00 into your Impact Account. World Vision matches that by 4x. That’s $40.00, and that will feed one hungry child for 120 days.
