World Vision Launches Campaign for Children in Saskatchewan

International organization thanks area residents for their generosity

MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 20, 2016 /CNW/ - Today World Vision is launching the Campaign for Children in Saskatchewan. It is an opportunity for the international aid organization to thank residents for their incredible generosity, and give others a chance to sponsor a child and change a life. More than 11,000 people from Saskatchewan are World Vision sponsors, helping nearly 14,000 children around the world. The organization is rallying to help an additional 1,200 children waiting to be sponsored.

"Saskatchewan gets more sunshine than any other province and holds the record for the hottest day. We're excited to be spending the summer in one of the best places to feel the heat in the country. We have 1,200 kids who need some sunshine in their lives and you can help."

Joyce Gonzales, Campaign for Children Manager

During the summer months area residents may hear and see more about World Vision, and door-to-door representatives will be in communities in the province to answer questions about World Vision and provide the opportunity for area residents to sponsor a child and change a community.   


  • There are 11,413 World Vision child sponsors in Saskatchewan who help over 13,807 children.
  • Child Sponsorship makes World Vision's community development programs possible; providing communities with sustainable access to necessities like clean water, nutritious food, economic opportunity, health care and access to education.
  • The Saskatchewan Campaign for Children hopes to find an additional 1,200 sponsors to change a life, and connect with a child in a World Vision community around the world.
