Food

Every year, we provide more than nine million people with food assistance, including five million children.

Across the world hunger is a daily reality. In fact, one in nine people don’t have enough to eat. 

children in developing countries are underweight
primary school aged children across the developing work attend classes hungry
children go blind every year from vitamin A deficiency

We’re doing all we can to ensure children and their families don’t go hungry. When children are malnourished, we provide emergency food. But we don’t stop there. We also help keep children healthy and well-nourished for the long term.

 World Vision is on the ground delivering:</br></br>
Resource training: to ensure that community resources are managed in a sustainable way to prevent soil erosion, maintain soil fertility, use water more efficiently, and protect the environment, creating resilient communities who can sustainably use their local natural resource.

Cooking classes: teaching families how to improve nutrition and dietary diversity with locally grown, fresh ingredients.

Increasing agricultural productivity:  through improved seeds and farming practices to ensure greater crop outputs and access to markets so farming families can profitably sell their surplus food.
