Dear Friends,

Behind the bustling city lights and in between skyscrapers, live millions of urban poor children around the world who are invisible in the eyes of society.

If you were to take a walk down their street, this is what you will see
1. Overcrowded slums with makeshift living spaces
2. Stagnated sewage water, open and clogged drains
3. Dingy lanes littered with heaps of rubbish
4. Communal taps and toilets with no stable water supply
5. Street children scavenging in dump yards or working in mechanic shops, factories and etc.

Even though they live in a city where services and opportunities are close at hand, poverty, social and political barriers keep these beyond their reach. They end up suffering more deprivations than rural children, and are also at risk of extreme exploitation such as child labour and child prostitution.

As the urban population is rapidly climbing, the number of urban poor children will also rise. Each one of them are in need of a helping hand and the assurance of a future no longer caught in the stench of poverty.

Together, we can help ensure the dreams and lives of urban poor children do not go unheard or unseen.

Gratefully in partnership with you always,
World Vision Singapore

About the Charity

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice.

World Vision Singapore is a branch of World Vision International, and is a registered charity with Commissioner of Charities in Singapore.

In planning, implementing and evaluating its work, World Vision staff considers the basic needs of the child and the dynamics of the particular child's community. Does the child have a healthy diet? Is he or she attending school? Does the child have access to adequate health care, clean water, housing and clothing? Do his or her parents have an opportunity to improve the family's condition by growing more food or starting a small business?

All projects are regularly measured against such goals and objectives. Audits are conducted regularly by field staff and occasionally by outside consultants to ensure that the project is on track and is meeting the specific goals established by community leaders and World Vision.

Our help is offered without any reference to the religious faith of those with whom we work. People from Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and animist communities all receive help from World Vision.

World Vision accounts for every dollar. Audits are conducted regularly by external firms to verify the accuracy of World Vision's financial reporting.
