Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than ever before, clean water means hope, health, and resilience.
In conjunction with World Water Day on March 22, hear from two people who are passionate about clean water - Freda Liu, our Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Advocate, and Dinithi, a World Vision sponsored child who has experienced firsthand how access to clean water changes lives, including hers!
Listen to the 6-minute podcast:
The difficulties Dinithi and her community once faced in obtaining something as basic as clean water continues to be a struggle for many others. With more than 800 children around the world under the age of 5 dying from diarrhoea everyday due to poor water and sanitation*, you and I can take action to reduce this statistic and change the lives of many more children like Dinithi.
With the support of World Vision donors, every 10 seconds, one new person gets clean water. Their first sip of clean water could be the last time dirty water makes them sick; and the first time they are not too sick to attend school is their first step to a brighter future.
