Facts:

  • More than a third of Indigenous homes in the Northern Territory are over-crowded, putting people at greater risk of infectious diseases and other physical and mental health problems. In some remote Indigenous communities and schools, up to 60% of children suffer from trachoma, an infectious eye disease that causes blindness if left untreated.
    Fred Hollows Fundation
  • Extreme weather and an increase in natural disasters are jeopardising the ability of poor communities to grow crops, access water, and house and feed themselves. Nearly every facet of World Vision’s work is affected by these issues.
    World Vision
  • Almost one billion people, one in every seven people in the world, do not have access to adequate levels of food. .
