Each year more than 6 million children die before their fifth birthday. Often, all they need is basic medical care to treat preventable illnesses, but clinics are inaccessible or lack medicines and supplies.
Intestinal worms are one such threat to children that can be treated with de-worming medication. But without medicine, the worms that enter a child’s body through contaminated water or infested soil grow and spread, robbing the child of nutrients and bringing terrible pain or even death.
Your gift, in partnership with supplies from top pharmaceutical companies, multiplies 8 times in impact to provide life-saving medicines, including de-worming medication and other care to children and their families in the world’s poorest countries. With your help, clinics will have the ability to treat children by helping to rid them of diseases, chronic pain, and vitamin deficiencies, as well as helping to fight malnutrition which amplifies the effects of every illness. World Vision is supplying life-saving emergency food, rehydration salts, antibiotics, antimalarial medications, de-worming medication, vitamin A, and more to help children get healthy and strong.
Today, thanks to generous corporate partners, your gift multiplies 8 times in impact to help provide essential medicines and supplies to children and their families around the world. Please give generously today.

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.
