Through the World Vision Gift Catalog and sponsors, World Vision Mongolia has become a major force in protecting children. This holiday season, we’re profiling the two girls who grace the cover of the World Vision’s Gift Catalog: Chania, a bright and cheerful 5-year-old who lives in Burundi’s upcountry, and Dulamsuren, the daughter of a semi-nomadic herder in central Mongolia. In Burundi, 10 million people squeeze into an area roughly the size of Maryland.
