ASIA PACIFIC - region with the highest number of vulnerable children

Asia Pacific is home to half of the world’s population. Despite growing economies and an accelerated pace of change, children in the region continue to experience a life of hardship alongside the risk of violence and exploitation. Together with our partners, donors, supporters and community members, World Vision (WV) is creating opportunities for children to experience fullness of life.

World Vision has been present in the Asia-Pacific region for more than 70 years and has worked with communities, donors, partners, and governments to create opportunities for better futures for vulnerable children including those in the most volatile regions. Currently, we work in 18 countries across the region, reaching out to thousands of vulnerable communities through holistic programming.

Together, we have impacted the lives of 16.7 million people, including 10.3 million vulnerable across the Asia Pacific, in 2020 alone. Our Christian faith teaches us that every child, regardless of gender, faith or race, is a precious gift to the entire world. We work so that every child can learn, play and enjoy the quality of life they deserve.
