World Vision works in some of the most remote areas in the world to provide clean water and help lift people out of poverty. | I(mage courtesy: worldvision.org
When children have access to clean water, they get to go to school, they get to spend time with their families, they get to live their lives without the fear of getting sick from something they have to drink to survive. They get the opportunities life has to offer that they have never been able to take advantage of before.
Hundreds of children die everyday from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. But World Vision believes the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes.
