While the Child Sponsorship Programme focuses on addressing the five basic needs (i.e. food security, health & nutrition, water & sanitation, education and economic development) in a specific community, World Vision recognises that individual sectors are important and require funding too.
You can contribute to any of the sectors below, and your contributions will be directed to the programmes (within a specific sector) that are most urgent and need the most help.
Health & Nutrition
Every year, 6.6 million children die of preventable diseases before the age of five. Hundreds of thousands of mothers die during pregnancy or childbirth, and HIV-infected parents end up leaving their children unprotected and alone. You can play a part in boosting their overall health.

More than 770 million adults and 123 million youths in the world are illiterate, with woman making up the majority. When you give, access to quality education will empower children to not only have a chance at a better future, but also protect themselves against atrocities like sexual exploitation and slavery.

Hunger is the greatest threat to global public health, and it is not hard to see why – more than 840 million people worldwide do not have enough to eat. With hunger being the sole cause of 3.1 million child deaths annually, no amount is too small to make a difference.

Water, Sanitation & Hygiene
Many communities drink the same water they wash their clothes and urinate into. Unsafe water and poor sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of conflict. If you want them to enjoy the same basic human rights as we in Singapore do, you can take action today.

Approximately 2.4 billion people live on less than S$2.50 a day, with 20% of the developing world living on or below S$1.56 a day. To put things into perspective, one movie ticket in Singapore can actually cost eight times more than their daily income. But now, you have the power to make their lives much better.

Children in Crisis
Young boys and girls in developing countries face very high risks of being trafficked, sexually exploited or subjected to forced labour. They lack the ability to protect themselves and will face great difficulty in escaping from their own dire circumstances. Help them lead better and brighter lives.
