Who is World Vision and What do we do?
World Vision Ireland is a child-focused overseas aid agency. We are part of World Vision International, the largest privately funded NGO in the world. With the help of over 4.7 million supporters worldwide we deliver clean water, education, healthcare and sanitation to over 120 million children in nearly 100 countries worldwide.
World Vision’s work can be grouped into three key areas:
- Short-term emergency relief, such as providing food, shelter and medical care to victims of natural or human-made disasters.
- Long-term sustainable community development focusing on helping communities with clean water, education, health care, agricultural improvements and sanitation
- Working with policymakers and the public at the national, regional and global level to build awareness around poverty and to address the unjust systems that help perpetuate it.
