Dorcas Gets Fresh Start


Nine-year-old Dorcas, a sponsored child in Zambia, was burdened by disease and long days of carrying water for her grandmother. Then World Vision dug a well in her village and everything changed for the better.

Dorcas drew water four times daily from a filthy hole where animals drink and die. She had no other choice.

Around the world, 663 million people have no access to clean water. Without clean water, they can die.

Diseases due to contaminated water and poor sanitation took the lives of 300,000 children under 5 in 2015. That’s 34 children an hour.

It’s as if every hour of every day, a classroom full of children disappears forever.

Inspired by Dorcas’ story? Rally your friends and family today and join the Global 6K for Water on May 6.
