World Vision responded to a drought in Mauritania in the 1970s which led to a drought response team being set up in 1983. Since then, some of World Vision’s major accomplishments have included:
- Feeding millions of hungry Mauritanians in the 1980s and 1990s.
- Educating women about nutrition and health issues and providing thousands of people with access to clean water during the 1990s.
- Continuing drought relief efforts, supporting microloan endeavors, and raising HIV and AIDS awareness.
