Who we are
World Vision is an international Christian humanitarian, development and advocacy organisation. Our work began in the 1950s, with one man-Bob Pierce- who committed to help one child in one country with just $5. Bob Pierce, a preacher and war correspondent witnessed tragedy and poverty as he helped missionaries across Asia.
Today World Vision has operations in nearly 100 countries worldwide responding to the call of serving the world’s most vulnerable regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
In Sudan World Vision has been responding to the Darfur crisis since June 2004. World Vision has its head office in Khartoum (the capital city of Sudan). We are operating in three states namely: South Darfur, Blue Nile and most recently (2017) in East Darfur. Our work in South Darfur accounts for approximately 80 per cent of the total annual budget.
World Vision’s operations are three fold i.e. humanitarian emergency response, recovery, and development. Our interventions are in health and nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food security and sustainable livelihoods, education as well as natural resource management.
World Vision also provides emergency food assistance through the support of the World Food Programme (WFP).
World Vision Sudan has slightly over 250 staff, a majority of whom are Sudanese nationals with a diverse range of competencies.
Our Vision for every child, life in all its fullness;
Our prayer for every heart, the will to make it so.
