Climate change

  1. Children in Tanzania are planting fruit trees at school to provide them with shade and nutritious food.
  2. A family in India receives emergency supplies from World Vision after their village was devastated by floods.
  3. This woman is searching for drinking water in the wake of floods in Bangladesh.
  4. In Kenya, children help their father to harvest what they can from a drought-affected crop.

Because many rely on natural resources to survive, poor communities are often the least equipped to cope with environmental damage. World Vision's commitment to help children living in poverty means we must address the impacts of climate change and the poverty it causes.
