“This is our only water source. People use it for bathing, washing their clothes, watering their animals and for drinking,” says Shayitu Dabata of her village in Ethiopia.

“Twice a day, every day, I walk an hour each way to fetch this water for my family. It leaves me exhausted—and afraid.

“All of us get sick a lot. When we go to the health center they tell us what we already know: it is coming from the water.

“We spend a lot of money on medicine to get well, and then we have to drink this water and we get sick all over again. Every day I wonder: who will relieve me of the burden of this river?

Worldwide, about every 90 minutes a child under 5 dies as a results of diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and unsafe hygiene practices.

World Vision brings clean water to more people than any other nongovernmental organization.
