Together World Vision and Planetshakers are bringing hope to some of the world’s poorest communities.
For over a decade, Planetshakers have been supporting World Vision's work.
During this time, over 4000 children have been sponsored through this partnership and tens of thousands dollars have been raised. This year we are embarking on an exciting new phase in this partnership with a special focus on Malawi, in southern Africa.
Planetshakers are directly supporting the Nkaya Water and Sanitation Project
to protect children and their families from deadly waterborne diseases. More than 80 percent of people living in Nkaya do not have access to clean drinking water. This causes widespread illness and suffering and has a devastating impact on children’s growth and development. Donations will help to provide the Nkaya community with sustainable access to clean water, basic sanitation and essential hygiene education.
