A deep well fitted with a hand pump can provide up to 2,800 gallons of safe water a day to benefit as many as 300 people!
In many communities, clean water lies hundreds of feet below layers of hard rock. Children have no choice but to walk long distances to find water that is often dirty and disease-ridden. When our drilling teams strike water, entire villages erupt in celebration — because a clean water source can cut a community's child mortality rate by as much as half.
World Vision pools donations to provide wells in as many communities as possible. Wells are not matched to individual donors. As progress updates come in, a report will be available describing how your gift is helping to provide clean water in communities affected by poverty.
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.
