A lifeline for fragile lives
Through Save Fragile Lives, World Vision extends a lifeline to children and families living in the most dangerous places on earth. Known as ‘fragile contexts’, these are areas where a government cannot or will not act to protect the human rights of its population. These countries are usually weakened by chronic economic and political problems.
Not surprisingly, the people experience unacceptably high maternal and child mortality rates. In addition, they face dangers posed by harmful traditional practices, such as female genital mutilation and early marriage; widespread child exploitation, such as rape and child trafficking; recruitment as child soldiers or as child prostitutes, and so on.
They are also far more likely to be affected by diseases and malnutrition caused by poor hygiene, limited access to water and nutritious food.
By giving to Save Fragile Lives, you will be our partner in protecting some of the world’s most vulnerable people, helping to offer life-saving support and care, as well as rehabilitation and stability in volatile areas.
