Provide life-saving assistance to children and families affected by the typhoons in the Philippines and Vietnam
About Campaignends 20 Feb 2021, 11:59 PM
The Philippines and Vietnam have been suffering from a recent onslaught of multiple typhoons. From October to November 2020, both countries have each experienced eight storms and severe flooding. This included Typhoon Molave which was the strongest storm to hit Vietnam in 20 years as well as Super Typhoon Goni which had wind strengths comparable to that of Typhoon Haiyan when it made landfall in the Philippines.
Few days after Super Typhoon Goni left the Philippine landmass, battering the populous island of Luzon, Typhoon Vamco struck the country, further aggravating the situation of families. Typhoon Vamco also subsequently moved to Vietnam. Aside from the devastating impact of the typhoons, the threat of COVID-19 pandemic has also been a lingering concern of the affected families.
You can provide life-saving assistance to children and families affected by the typhoons in the Philippines and Vietnam. Journey with survivors to full recovery!
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.
