Donate to the Clean Water Fund. More than 6,000 children die each day from diseases spread by unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation and hygiene. Giving to the Clean Water Fund will help bring clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to communities — helping cut child deaths by more than half!
Your gift of clean water will also help save children the suffering caused by parasites, worms, dysentery, and diarrhea. Plus, they’ll be able to attend school, because they won’t have to spend their days sick in bed or walking long distances to collect water.
In Niger, Mariama used to spend more than two hours every day fetching unsafe water located a mile from her home. The 10-year-old remembers the day when World Vision drilled a new clean water well. “Before we had to go far to get water, but now [the water well] is very close to the village.”
Clean water has improved the villagers’ health and saved many hours a day. Now adults have more time to work and children have more energy to spend on school. World Vision also built latrines in Mariama’s village, improving hygiene and sanitation.
In the past two decades, World Vision’s water projects in Niger and around the world have saved countless lives and brought more than 10 million people access to clean water. Your donation to the Clean Water Fund will help provide children and families in poverty with access to clean water through things like:
- Deep wells that supply safe water
- Storage containers for rainwater
- Piping systems to irrigate crops and improve access to clean water
- Purification equipment to treat water contaminated by bacteria and other waterborne disease-carriers
- Latrines and hand-washing stations to protect clean water sources and improve children’s health
- And much more!
