World Vision Mauritania

About Us

World Vision responded to a drought in Mauritania in the 1970s which led to a drought response team being set up in 1983. Since then, some of World Vision’s major accomplishments have included:

  • Feeding millions of hungry Mauritanians in the 1980s and 1990s.
  • Educating women about nutrition and health issues and providing thousands of people with access to clean water during the 1990s.
  • Continuing drought relief efforts, supporting microloan endeavors, and raising HIV and AIDS awareness.

Violence, in all its forms, is the biggest issue affecting children today. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
