Counting Our Blessings

Fiscal 2009 provided another reminder that World Vision’s ministry rests in God’s hands. Thanks to your faithful support, last year we were blessed with continued growth despite a tough economy.

  • World Vision U.S. was responsible for distributing 243,000 metric tons of food, equal to more than 8,000 semi-truck loads.
  • 89 percent of the total operating budget went to ministry, with overhead expenses down 6 percent.
  • Revenue from private and public sources reached $1.2 billion—a 10 percent increase.
  • The number of children helped by U.S. sponsors grew by more than 10,000.
  • Staff responded to an estimated 95 emergencies worldwide.
