I worked with the teachers on how to help younger students understand and practice health hygiene behaviours – particularly the importance of washing their hands

What if no one ever washed their hands?

Ever. Again.

(And, yes, this includes no hand sanitizer.)

How long would we expect life as we know it to persist?

Well, if you live in a developed country, you might expect that life could...

Amidst hurricanes and earthquakes, a paralyzing hunger crisis continues to grip millions of families in eastern Africa. 

You could be forgiven if you’ve forgotten about it. In a media landscape dominated by entertainment personalities and natural disasters, the stubborn drought in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya, along with the conflict in South Sudan rarely make global headlines.

In the past one and a half years, as a communicator and storyteller for World Vision, I have been deployed to emergencies, including floods, cyclones, and landslides. I have met many affected by natural hazards. But this was my first experience in a protracted crisis, something new and different.

Approaching her metal bed in the Lodwar County hospital, it became apparent something was desperately wrong. Her emaciated body was brittle, she wore the clothes of a newborn, despite being age two.

Her mom told me she could...

According to No Lost Generation research, it’s also a concern for...
