Join us as we follow some very special children and their communities in Zambia as they gain access to clean water for the first time in their lives. Thanks to a challenge from other donors, every $50 you give doubles in impact to provide two people with access to clean water and all its benefits. (*ends December 31, 2014).
World Vision water is the most ambitious water program of its kind, reaching a new person with clean water every 30 seconds. As part of our goal of bringing clean water to all the world's children, we've established our Zambia Project, which will bring clean water to 40,000 Zambians.
6 kilometers is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water — water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On Saturday, May 6th, 2017, people from around the globe will walk or run an average distance for an extraordinary cause.
World Vision is the leading nongovernmental (NGO) provider of clean water. We reach one new person with clean water every 30 seconds. We work alongside communities so that they take ownership in maintenance and repair of water points. This results in water that continues to flow long after our work concludes.
War in Syria has displaced 12 million people. Worldwide, nearly 60 million people have been driven from their homes by conflict.
Now in its fifth year, the crisis in Syria has unleashed one of the worst humanitarian crises in modern history. Roughly 12 million people have been displaced by the fighting and are in desperate need of assistance. Children are the largest and most vulnerable group affected by the Syria crisis, yet their needs are often unmet. A generation of children is at risk of being lost — lost to displacement, lost to poverty, lost to the worst forms of child labor and other forms of exploitation. Without educated and safe children, it will take much longer and be much harder for Syria to recover.
Please pray for the children impacted by the crisis in Syria, and give a gift to help refugee children and their families today.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.
