"Being in these small villages with people who seemingly have nothing, yet they have this matter of fact joy about living... which is everything, isn’t it?"
Funny couple Colin Mochrie and Deb McGrath have been friends to World Vision for decades. In 2010, they visited the Democratic Republic of Congo and met a straight-talking little girl named Nana, who stole their hearts. Both Colin and Deb continue to be dedicated to raising awareness for the world’s most vulnerable children and communities.
“Deb and I went to the Congo with World Vision a couple of years ago. One of the most life-altering trips ever. Being in these small villages with people who seemingly have nothing, yet they have this matter of fact joy about living, which is everything, isn’t it?”
When you sponsor a child, you help break the cycle of poverty by providing a child and their community with life-saving necessities. Canadians have been partnering with World Vision for more than 50 years, because they've discovered that sponsorship works. With your help, we partner with the child, their family, neighbours and local leaders to transform a struggling community into one that is thriving. World Vision’s programs focus on Food, Education, Health, Clean water, Child Protection and other vital areas which improve the lives of children and their community.
