Bath Time


Two women bathe a baby boy in a Syrian refugee settlement in Lebanon.

In Syrian Arab tradition, aunts help new mothers care for their newborns. Here, Lubaba, a mother of four children, comes to the aid of her sister, Shawwaga, to bathe her son, Abd Al Rahman.

“Before [World Vision] had installed the water tanks, my children used to get sick all the time. Now we know why—because of the water,” Lubaba says. Worldwide, more than 1,600 children die each day from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation and hygiene practices.

The baby’s mother is relieved to be able to care for her child. “Thanks to World Vision, I have the means to bathe my children at least two times per week,” Shawwaga says.
