The moment I saw Kumari’s photo and background, I decided instantly that I was going to take up sponsorship. However, as I was not financially independent yet, I roped in two other good friends - Yinmin and Sik Yin, along in this journey. We have never looked back since.

World Vision has today warned of the detrimental psychological impact the ongoing crisis in Ukraine will have on children and families.

As the Ukraine crisis deepens, World Vision's concern is the risk posed to the most vulnerable – children.
