A girl in Malawi washes her hands with a system her mother made outside their family's latrine. Children without clean water get sick because they can’t wash away germs after going to the toilet.
Every day, more than 1,600 children die from diarrhea caused by unsafe water.
As part of World Vision's southern Africa WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) initiative, children receive sanitation and hygiene training as well as access to clean, safe drinking water.
Please pray with us for the work to bring clean water to more communities in Africa:
“Heavenly Father, You are good and merciful. Comfort children who suffer from frequent disease due to bad water. Preserve their lives when they are sick. Lead their communities to discover clean water sources close to them.”
