Lonsdale and Wereti strongly believe that most parents lack a clear understanding of each other. “As for me and my wife, like many others, we also have our share of arguments and fights,” shared the couple. “Through the World Vision Channels of Hope program, we learned to grow together and understand each other much better than before,” says Lonsdale.

Solomon Islands

World Vision Solomon Islands  is one of the largest and most experienced non-government agencies in the Solomon Islands. We've worked in the Solomon Islands for the past 30 years and currently employ nearly 200 staff. We work in five provinces including Guadalcanal, Makira-Ulawa, Malaita, Temotu, Central and the capital Honiara.

We work to promote children’s health throughout all our projects. Our aim is to improve the overall well-being of children by increasing community knowledge on health issues, nutrition, and pregnancy. We also focus on providing valuable clean and safe water, and encourage improved hygiene. Our education and economic projects aim to improve  lifestyles and nutrition for children and their communities.

The Solomon Islands is a group of more than 900 islands located in the south-west Pacific Ocean. The majority of Solomon Islanders live in small villages scattered over about a third of the islands. Political unrest and tensions between 1999 and 2003 had a big impact on communities in the Solomon Islands. Homes, schools and health clinics were destroyed, supplies and services were disrupted and there was a decline in livelihoods, health and well-being. With the arrival of the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands in June 2003, the security situation improved, displaced families started returning home, and government services were re-established.
