World Vision: Clean Water Campaign Rwanda | Meghan Markle

World Vision is proud to announce Meghan Markle, lifestyle expert, and actress, best known for her role as Rachel Zane on the hit legal drama Suits, as a Global Ambassador to the organization.

This past February, Meghan Markle traveled to Rwanda to witness World Vision’s water work. During her one-week visit to the country, she trekked to unclean water sources, visited clean water projects, helped build a well, and met many Rwandans whose hospitality and stories have made a lasting impression on her life.

Clean water does more than quench thirst, it changes lives. There are more than 663 million people worldwide living without this fundamental resource.

Partner with World Vision Canada to help bring access to clean water in order to provide:

1) Health: When a community has access to clean water, sanitation, and good hygiene practices, it helps improve medical services, like preventing infections and ensuring the healthy deliveries of children.

2) Education: School is one of the best ways to lift children out of poverty. But dirty water can cause dehydration and decreases a child’s ability to focus and learn in school.

3) Food: Clean water is for more than just drinking. It’s also integral to farming. When fields are properly irrigated, crop yields and livestock production can greatly increase.

4) Safety: In many countries in the developing world, women and children walk long distances to collect water. These journeys are dangerous, often putting their personal safety at risk.

In 2021, we used 90% of our total operating expenses for programs that benefit children, families, and communities in need.

The ICRC operates worldwide, helping people affected by conflict and armed violence and promoting the laws that protect victims of war.
