In June, the monsoon season’s heavy rains battered Bangladesh, causing several landslides in Rangamati, Chittagong and Bandarban. At least 152 people lost their lives in what was deemed one of the worst landslides in Bangladesh’s history. The monsoon season marched on: At it's height on 11 August, almost a week’s worth of rain fell across parts of Bangladesh in a matter of a few hours, leaving almost nearly a third of the country underwater. Eight year old Jibon was among the scores of people whose lives were altered irrevocably. 

Based on my experience as a Famine Camper in 2013, and as a Famine Camp Leader in 2018, I would say that this year’s 30 Hour Famine Camp was by far the most challenging yet. But despite how arduous it was, the camp was also extremely meaningful in highlighting the plight of refugee children driven out of their home countries by conflict and persecution, as well as children displaced by natural disasters.

Every single day when we read the newspapers or watch the news, we learn about the countless disasters happening around the world. The Syrian Crisis. The African Drought. The Rohingya Refugee Crisis. These are only some of the many disasters occurring in our world.

Watch as television host Greta Georges carried out a special delivery mission with World Vision – to bring a gift of a cow to the sole breadwinner of a family in Tien Lu. This is part of our economic development support to help parents provide for their children in a sustainable way.

Before World Vision phases out of Tien Lu ADP, Vietnam, in 2020, we need your support so families there can dare to hope again. Support them through microfinance & integrated economic livelihood. Empower them to move from “can’t” to “can”!
