With the economic recovery in Hong Kong, World Vision Hong Kong turned itself into a fundraising office in 1982, supporting the relief and development work of World Vision offices world-wide. In 2010, the people of Hong Kong sponsored over 200,000 children living in poverty, helping to fund World Vision Hong Kong’s international long-term ‘Area Development Programmes’. World Vision Hong Kong also promotes public education, raising public awareness about global issues such as poverty, hunger, health and child rights.
