Help keep U.S. families safe from water-related disease.
Clean water isn’t just an issue in developing countries — a 2021 article published in Nature Communications reported a “widespread and unjust drinking water and clean water crisis in the United States.” World Vision helps deliver bottled water and home filtration systems to families in the U.S. who urgently need clean water due to natural disasters or environmental and infrastructure degradation.
Unreliable municipal water systems, including aging treatment plants, old pipes, and overflowing sewers, have created a significant public health concern. Increasingly, unhealthy levels of contaminants like lead and algae are being discovered, resulting in “no-drink, no-boil” advisories.
In rural areas, toxins are also rising due to agricultural run-off and chemical fertilizers. In addition, families in remote areas that lack water lines are vulnerable, particularly in the cold winter months, as water pumps break and pipes burst.
Just $2.50 can help one family facing a water crisis by enabling World Vision to deliver bottled water and home filtration systems. That means your gift of $50 will provide 20 families with clean water, helping ensure that kids stay healthy and safe.
Monthly giving: the simple way to make your donations do more. Give to Poverty in America.
Monthly giving is the most effective way to help the children and families who need it most. It lowers costs and puts more of your money to work changing lives. Plus, your donations will be delivering the right solution at just the right time. And while your gifts are at work changing lives, you’ll get to see the power of your generosity through quarterly updates and the World Vision magazine.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in 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.
