With the help of generous supporters like you, World Vision has been changing lives by improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene. Our work tackles the problem from all angles. We can help provide equitable access to toilets, wells, boreholes, water tanks and taps. But we also help ensure long-term success by working with the community to promote hygiene and offer training.
Democratic Republic of Congo: School hygiene kits help children like Daniela to keep healthy.
Laos: A toilet close to home makes life easier for children like Souksada.
Indonesia: Afriani and her son Reza get clean water at an evacuation post after the Central Sulawesi earthquake.
Eight-year-old Ismatara lives in the world’s largest refugee settlement, in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. She fled here with her family when violence broke out in Myanmar in 2017.
Ismatara used to walk long distances to collect water, climbing the camp’s steep hills with a heavy aluminium can. The water was dirty and made her sick.
Now, a new well near her house serves 100 families – about 500 people. “I can drink water and bathe easily now,” she says.
You’re making an incredible difference. With your help, World Vision is reaching one new person with clean water every 10 seconds. We hope you’ll keep working with us towards a world where all children have access to clean water.
