We are supporting efforts of our local partners, sharing stay-healthy messaging, helping to set up public hand washing stations, and distributing soap, sanitizer, and masks where appropriate. In places of extreme poverty, improving health, water, sanitation and hygiene saves lives – now, more than ever. Join us in these efforts.
Please provide your name and phone number and we will be in touch to help.
Can I visit my Sponsored Child?
Yes, visiting your Sponsored Child offers a unique opportunity to see first-hand the difference your sponsorship has made. If you are planning to visit your Sponsored Child, please contact World Vision New Zealand at least three months before you plan to leave so we can make arrangements with World Vision in the country you will be visiting.
How long will I sponsor my child?
In most cases, it will be throughout their childhood and into their teens. Most children will be in the sponsorship programme until their community has begun to reach most of its goals, and become self-sustainable. As a project comes to a close we will let you know of the achievements in the community so you can celebrate with us.
