Water and Sanitation
More children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation than almost any other cause. In fact, more than 1,600 children die every day from diarrhea caused by unsafe water – that’s more than the number of deaths from AIDS and malaria combined. Your gift today will multiply 3X in impact to help prevent these deaths.
World Vision is one of the largest providers of clean water in the developing world – reaching one new person with clean water every 30 seconds. Our unique community involvement model, built over 60 years, helps people adopt positive behaviors that result in sustained water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions. Water continues to flow after we leave because communities have ownership of the water points and can maintain and repair them.
When combined with grant funds, your gift will multiply 3X in impact to bring safe, clean water to those who need it most. You’ll help drill wells, build latrines, and organize communities to improve sanitation and hygiene.
No other gift produces a more dramatic effect on life than clean water and sanitation. Please give now — for these children, every minute counts.
