World Vision is the largest international children’s charity, working in 100 countries across the globe working to bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places. We do it all as a sign of God’s unconditional love to promote human transformation and seek justice. Poverty, conflict and disaster leave children living in fear. Fear of hunger, disease, violence, conflict, exploitation and fear that robs them of a childhood. World Vision’s worldwide presence means that the local staff on the ground can be quick to respond to emergencies like conflict and natural disasters. World Vision also use their influence and global reach to ensure children are represented at every level of decision making. World Vision can do this because people like us are prepared to sponsor, donate, pray, campaign or share stories of children who have been given hope.
As World Vision’s Ambassador I have been involved with World Vision since 2004 through sponsoring, firstly a young girl in India and now a young boy in Senegal. I have visited him twice in the last three years as well as seeing at first hand many World Vision projects which dovetail with the new Sustainable Development Goals agreed at the United Nations in New York in September 2015. I am passionate about the way they work, the professionalism and commitment of the staff working in the communities and embrace everyone as my ‘Family’. I have also campaigned under the Action2015 banner meeting MP’s, Peers and policymakers in Westminster to make sure they deliver on their promises to support the progression of these new sustainable development goals.
