Why sponsor a child?

2021 is turning into a humanitarian crisis for children. Beyond the immediate issues of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know there are more children at risk for child marriage, child labour, and abuse.

How sponsoring a child helps children and communities

Your monthly contribution of RM65 (to sponsor a child in an Asian country) or RM80 (to sponsor a child in a non-Asian country) will provide the basic necessities of life to children and families in need.

Through our special focus on children, World Vision works with communities for about 10 to 15 years, empowering children, families and communities to break the cycle of poverty.
