About the Charity
Taken from the World Vision Korea Website
In 1950, World Vision was founded in the ashes of Korean Wars. In 1991, World Vision Korea marked its historical
transition into a donor country from a receiving country. In 2006, it was accredited as the only official partner with
WFP among Korean NGOs in recognition of its ministry excellence.
World Vision is accredited as a leading accountable INGO by world’s major charity evaluators including Better Busi-
ness Bureau, Charity Navigator and One World Trust.
World Vision Korea is a partnership entity of World Vision International based in London, United Kingdom, which is
one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations with 40,000 staff working in 100 countries. World Vision Inter-
national is granted the ‘General Consultative’ status by United Nations Economic and Social Council.
World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization which respects other religions and does not work on the premise of conversion. World Vision cooperates with leaders of different religions around the world and does not discriminate people against religion, culture, gender and race.

Sponsor a Child Overseas or Domestically
The program most necessary for sponsored children’s community is implemented to gradually change the whole community in cooperation with community people.
