“There used to be times when I felt like giving up on life,” says 16-year-old Joseph. “I could not take it anymore. Seeing my friends playing, going to school and doing things on their own used to make me sad because I couldn’t walk or do things on my own.” An orphan and physically disabled, life has not been easy for Joseph.
But when World Vision came and presented him with a new wheelchair, his hopes were reignited. Now he inspires to be a doctor when he completes school so that he can bring hope to other vulnerable children in his community the same way World Vision has brought back his lost hopes.
Come with us to the heart of Africa, Zambia, to meet children and their families who have hope restored through sponsorship and donations. Witness how child sponsorship changes lives and spend time with vulnerable children. Experience their hope and learn about World Vision’s efforts to improve the lives of vulnerable children like Joseph.
