Donate to the Clean Water Fund. Every day, 1,600 children under age 5 die from diarrhea caused by unsafe water. 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 interventions 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!
We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The needs shown in this catalog reflect World Vision projects at the time of writing and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears and donations will be used to provide assistance where it is needed most within that category or to address a similar need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
