World Vision Aims to Sponsor 2,000 Children in 1,000 Hours

World Vision, an international humanitarian organization, introduced a new child sponsorship campaign last August 22, 2017. Called “2,000 Children in 1,000 Hours,” this new campaign stresses the urgency of World Vision’s cause to challenge everyone who supports child advocacy and help World Vision secure a better future for 2,000 children in 1,000 hours.

2,000 unsponsored children are currently being supported by World Vision. They are living in dire situations where there is lack of access to clean water, full meals, and education. This new campaign aims to draw support from potential sponsors to help provide basic needs to these children and their families in the hope of bringing lasting change to their communities.
