Britt Hamilton helps to lift up the voices of children, families and communities through her work as a communications officer for World Vision Canada. Her career in the humanitarian sector started with a CIDA internship that took her to Pakistan to film a documentary about a family dealing with their daughter’s desire for a “love marriage”. Upon joining World Vision, she worked in emergency communications, helping media cover the agency’s response to natural disasters such as earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, floods in Pakistan and droughts in Africa. More recently she has been working on the advocacy side, striving to influence Canadian policy by promoting World Vision’s work in the areas of maternal, newborn and child health, food security, child protection, and aid effectiveness in fragile states.
