This Christmas Season we are partnering with World Vision in helping children & families that are in need.
Goal 1: Clean Water for 2 Families
Your gift provides families with clean water that lasts! Clean water frees children from deadly water-related diseases. It liberates women and children from a life spent gathering dirty water. It restores health and opens the door to education, a promising future, and a full life – the kind of life God intends.
Children are often forced to walk many miles every day to get water that can make them sick — or worse. Unsafe water contributes to more child deaths than AIDS and malaria combined.
The good news is World Vision is reaching a new person with clean water every 30 seconds!
Although World Vision is the largest nongovernmental provider of clean water in the developing world, there are millions of people still in need. EVERY child deserves clean water, and we’re passionate about following the example of Jesus in helping the poorest of the poor.
World Vision’s clean water work is more than just drilling wells – it also provides:
* Education on hygiene and sanitation so that children and families stay healthy
* Training community volunteers on proper maintenance and repair of water points
* Building of latrines and hand washing stations
* And much more!
