World Vision’s work
World Vision Australia works globally with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Our work in long-term community development, policy advocacy and change, and emergency relief addresses not only the symptoms
of poverty, but also its complex and interrelated causes.
Del's ultimate goal as a Goodwill Ambassador is to inform and educate people about World Vision's work and empower them to get involved. After meeting our field team in Nepal, she felt energised and inspired to work with us
to help achieve our global mission.
