Residents of slums like Mirpur lack resources and services necessary to meet their everyday needs like water, sanitation and basic healthcare facilities. Mirpur’s most vulnerable – the sick and children – are often the worst affected by this healthcare black hole.
To help them, World Vision has been identifying malnourished children and referring them to near by health centres and hospitals, as well as monitoring their improvement.
We’ve also trained 1,193 people in child rights and protection, and helped 4,506 community members to complete birth registration.
Your generosity has helped with staffing eight service providers which support vulnerable families and children, and supported 10 child protection and advocacy groups.
