Working With Children in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on World Vision operations

In support of public health recommendations outlined by the World Health Organization, some sponsorship program activities have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Activities may include sponsor queries and correspondence, sponsor visits, gift notifications and gift deliveries. These temporary suspensions may affect the information you receive from us in the coming weeks and months. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is a country with complex needs where we work with some of the world’s most vulnerable children. But we also work in more stable areas of the country where we are able to implement child sponsorship programs.

World Vision child sponsorship starts by looking at what is preventing children from surviving and thriving in their community. We then work with the community to bring the pieces of the puzzle together to build a better life for all children. For sponsors, it’s a personal way to show life-changing love to children in need.
