Thanks to the generous support of the Australian public, corporate Australia and the Australian Government, World Vision Australia raised over $118 million for relief and rehabilitation programs. These funds contributed to World Vision's International Partnership response budget of over USD $356 million.
World Vision’s tsunami response programs are now complete, but World Vision continues to partners with communities affected by the tsunami through new development programmes aimed at improving the well-being of children. New child sponsorship, livelihoods, education, health, and disaster mitigation programmes are underway.
World Vision emphasised the importance of accountability and integrity from the very beginning of the Tsunami response. New structures, systems, and policies were established to ensure a high level of transparency, in addition to a continuous internal audit function.
World Vision’s largest relief response in history is now complete. World Vision has been successful in developing and implementing programming aimed at rebuilding tsunami-affected areas. Communities are now steering their futures with new livelihood opportunities, permanent homes, improved infrastructure and reduced vulnerability to future disasters.
World Vision continues to fund long-term community development programs throughout Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and Myanmar. World Vision is also funding emergency relief projects in conflict-affected areas of Sri Lanka.
