Perth Jewish Organisations and individuals considering supporting World Vision’s slick campaigns should read the following from the NGO Monitor Website:
- Website: www.wvi.org
- Founded in 1950, World Vision International describes itself as a Christian relief and development organization; “a global partnership conducting child-focused emergency relief, sustainable community development and advocacy in 92 countries worldwide.”
- claims charitable status in the United States and internationally; in addition to the majority of its funds, which are received from private donors, World Vision is also funded by US Aid, Irish Aid, and the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
- has highly politicized agenda under the guise of “development assistance and justice”; active in promoting crude anti-Israel propaganda in the UN framework.
- demonization and anti-Israel bias is expressed on the World Vision International and the Jerusalem-West Bank-Gaza websites; consistent failure to recognize Palestinian terrorism and its effects on Israelis, as well as a lack of context or explanation for Israeli measures to protect its citizens.
