"I took a trip with World Vision and saw first-hand what real poverty looked like... I have carried that with me ever since."
In September 1992, Sarah McLachlan traveled to Southeast Asia to help produce a Canadian-sponsored documentary on poverty and child prostitution. Inspired by her experiences, she wrote and released Fumbling Toward Ecstacy, her strongest and most personal effort, in late 1993.
McLachlan is a multi-platinum singer and songwriter with over 25 years in the recording industry. The Canadian-born, Grammy and Juno Award-winning artist has sold over 40 million albums worldwide.
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.
