Clean water isn’t just an issue in developing countries—millions of lives in communities across America are threatened by contaminated water.

Unreliable municipal water systems, including aging treatment plants, old pipes, and overflowing sewers, have created a significant public health concern. More and more often, unhealthy levels of contaminants like lead and algae are being discovered, resulting in “no-drink, no-boil” advisories. In fact, a 2016 EPA report showed that only nine states had acceptable levels of lead in their drinking water.

In rural areas, toxin levels are also on the rise due to agricultural run-off and the use of chemical fertilizers. Even 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.

Our Commitment

We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The needs and prices shown reflect World Vision projects 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.
