World Vision International has been working on emergency relief and development programmes in Pakistan since 2005.
Our relief responses include the earthquake in 2005 & 2015, floods in 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2012, the internally displaced persons (IDPs) Crisis in 2009 and 2012, and the 2013 measles outbreak in Sindh. We are currently operating in parts of Punjab and Sindh. World Vision is focusing on health and maternal & newborn child health (MNCH), education access and quality, and resilience through Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and economic development. These are achieved through cross-cutting themes of child protection and gender.
World Vision Pakistan is implementing various projects on child protection, youth empowerment and education, health & nutrition, disaster risk reduction, water, sanitation and hygiene. Presently, World Vision Pakistan is targeting about 794,852 children and youth directly and indirectly to provide them with access to education, protection, sustainable income generation, health care, food and better care within their homes and communities. World Vision is taking innovative steps such as mHealth towards pursuing MNCH and education goals in Pakistan.
