"Going on a trip really opened up my eyes to the need, but also the opportunities we have to help. We're all here to help others less fortunate. That's what I believe in."
Canadian NHL hockey star Mike Fisher visited El Salvador in 2009 to see World Vision projects in action. He is a child sponsor and proud supporter of community development programs helping to end the cycle of poverty.
Fisher joined three other hockey players in an emergency video to raise awareness for the West Africa famine in 2012. He is married to Carrie Underwood and continues to support the work of World Vision at events such as the 2013 Boots & Hearts music festival.
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 60 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.
