A Heavy Load
Naghma, 4, carries water home to her family in rural Afghanistan. When her older siblings are ill, she takes over.
For Naghma’s family, dirty water from a river is the source of water for cooking, cleaning, and drinking. That’s why the children are frequently ill from diarrhea.
It is estimated that out of a rural population of 18 million people, approximately 14 million do not have access to safe drinking water in Afghanistan. Water-borne diseases are the country’s leading cause of death.
More than 90,000 people in 285 villages in Afghanistan enjoy clean water and sanitation services now because of World Vision.
