World Vision U.S. President Edgar Sandoval Sr. reflects on how when World Vision brings clean water to a community, it lifts the burden of children like Ireen who must carry water — restoring their potential and dignity.
Catastrophic flooding from Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth affected close to 2.2 million people in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi. Idai and Kenneth were two of the top five worst storms to ever hit Mozambique. Together, they’ve caused an unprecedented amount of damage. World Vision staff are providing shelter, food, and clean water to families in need.
How can she reach for the stars when even water is unreachable? In the Great Rift Valley, poverty and lack of clean water create hardships for 8-year-old Ireen, who walks to collect water up to four times a day. World Vision is working alongside communities to bring the reality of clean water and good health to girls like Ireen.
