Orphaned Children

The U.N defines an orphan as a child who has lost one or both parents. These children have lost or have been abandoned by one or both parents. Vulnerable children who have lost their parents face the additional emotional struggle to build resilience amidst living in poverty. In the midst of their struggles, your sponsorship of orphans can help bring much-needed comfort and assurance to them. Sponsor orphans and journey with them like an extended family, to help them achieve their dream. Your sponsorship will directly help orphan children in need through holistic interventions including child protection, education and livelihood support.

Philippines, Antique AP

World Vision started its operations in Antique province in 1984 through a church partner. Over the years, the scope of work expanded and transited into longer term development programmes. With an established presence in the area, World Vision has been able to bring people together and empower local leaders and partners to make a difference for children in their community.

The Antique province has the highest rate of malnutrition in the entire Western Visayas region. With malnutrition present in the target community, children face an increased risk of wasting, stunted growth, respiratory illnesses and impaired brain development.

26% of the population in Antique live below the national poverty line. In several vulnerable families, men and boys work as sakadas, or sugarcane farmers, which is perilous work and does not generate much income. In order to ensure their families can afford basic necessities, men and boys work in other provinces and young women work as maids.

Low income levels have far reaching implications on children. It can lead to them dropping out of school to work in order to support their family. As parents are focused on finding food for the family, other responsibilities are left behind. The lack of parental guidance often leads to children engaging in delinquent behaviour.

Vietnam, Son Tra AP

While urbanisation rapidly spreads in Son Tra district, children from poor families continue to struggle to meet their basic needs. Almost one in five people live on less than US$2 per day and there are gaps in the areas of housing, transportation and education.

As the area develops, there is an increase in hotels and tourism. But locals are ill-equipped for this change as they lack formal education and technical skills. As a result, they have challenges gaining employment and providing for their children’s basic needs.

The district has the highest rate of stunting in the city, with 18.5% of children under the age of five being affected. Diarrhoea, acute respiratory infections, dengue and pneumonia are common diseases among children between 0-14 years old as poor families cannot afford proper healthcare from qualified practitioners.

Parents of poor families spend almost all their time struggling to make a living. As a result, their children are neglected and lack care, guidance and supervision.

In light of these needs, World Vision started the implementation of Son Tra AP in 2015. Through consultation and cooperation with community representatives and the local government, the project aims to improve the well-being of children.

Cambodia, Sambour AP

Sambour, Cambodia, is located in Kratie province, northeast of the country. The majority of the population in Sambour rely on farming, but as the district is prone to high occurrences of floods and droughts, livelihoods are often affected when crops are destroyed as a result. Children also suffer from domestic violence, abuse and neglect due to the lack of awareness among parents. While attaining an education is also a challenge for children due to the community's location, poor school infrastructure and lack of quality education.
