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.
Hugh has a special interest in humanitarian and emergency work, having visited our rehabilitation projects in Nepal after the 2015 earthquake. When disaster strikes, our expert teams are on the ground quickly to help save lives. And where possible, they stay long after the initial crisis is over to help communities recover in the long term.
