Every Child Deserves Clean Water
As we celebrate World Water Day 2021, World Vision wishes to congratulate the Ghanaian Government, development partners, NGOs/CSOs, private sector and other non-state actors for working hard to ensure that an increasing percentage of Ghana’s population has access to safe drinking water (MICS 2017/18). We, however, need to remind ourselves, that while we have made some strides, some six million children and their families still lack access to safe water.
World Vision donates critical PPE in the fight against COVID-19
As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, World Vision's response is to build the capacity of health workers, equip them to manage reported cases and reduce the likelihood of them getting infected in their line of duty.
Furthermore, we are committed to scaling up interventions to ensure that the most vulnerable children are protected from the virus.
COVID-19 and Agriculture: World Vision donates inputs to vulnerable farmers to cushion against losses
80% of smallholder farmers cultivating maize, rice, sorghum, and soybean in Garu and Tempane Districts have been significantly affected by COVID-19. To respond to the impact of the pandemic on the livelihoods of the rural poor, World Vision has donated agricultural inputs worth GHC 52, 952 (US $9,000) to 200 farmers from 14 communities for this year's farming activities.
World Vision supports Ghana Health Service in COVID-19 response
World Vision Ghana provided PPE and IET materials to Ghana Health Service in support of the fight against the prevalence of COVID-19 in Ghana.
Limited access to proper sanitation, insufficient and/or irregular supplies of food put many children in Ghana at risk, physically, every day. At the same time, low literacy levels coupled with high rates of child marriage, child labour and female genital mutilation make it difficult for many children to live life to their fullest, achieve their dreams and prepare for their future.
Our teams of dedicated development professionals have been working in Ghana since 1979 to build a better world for children, their families and their communities. We partner with parents, like-minded organizations, faith leaders and the government to address the underlying causes of poverty and injustice in order to build a better world for all children in Ghana.
