Hope Springs Eternal

Description

Kamama Lolem, age 5, fills her family’s tea kettle from a water kiosk in Kenya.

With clean water just 252 yards from her front door, Kamama benefits from a World Vision water system in her community. Before the water system opened, she and her siblings often suffered from diarrhea and other water-borne diseases that are now rarely seen. 

Nearly 1,000 children under 5 die every day from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. Global leaders have made universal access to water and sanitation key components of the new Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved by 2030.

World Vision is the largest nongovernmental provider of clean water in the developing world, reaching one new person with clean water every 30 seconds.

We are increasing our impact and scope to reach one new person with clean water and sanitation every 10 seconds by 2020, and we’ll then continue at that pace to reach everyone, everywhere we work by 2030.

Faithful God, help World Vision to bring clean water to those who desperately need it, and work in hearts to reveal the living water we can receive from You.
