Review for WORLD VISION INTERNATIONAL, Federal Way, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have seen first hand the work that World Vision is doing in Africa and I am so extremely impressed!
I worked to raise money for World Vision through my church's youth group and the 30 Hour Famine. after raising enough money to feed 2 children for a year (720.00 USD ) I applied for the Famine Study Tour and got accepted. I traveled to Burundi with World Vision. I have seen Schools built, medical clinics funded, housing funded, homes built, sustainable food sources provided to families, nutrition education provided for parents of young children, lunches provided for school age children and water made more accessible by World Vision. In Burundi (and all over the world) World Vision works to make communities and families self sustainable. One of the world vision workers we meant said it well " We want to teach the people to fish, not just eat the fish." They want the people to learn to do things so they can continue to develop as a community after World vision leaves. World vision is doing fantastic things. The money donated to this organisation goes very far and makes huge changes in peoples lives.
