Water Works News 

World Vision supporters help to provide clean water, improve sanitation and hygiene and bring real change.  

Since 2010, World Vision has provided more than 3.5 million children with access to clean water, safe and accessible toilets, water treatment kits, hand washing facilities, and hygiene education, so they can keep healthy and remain in school. 

Water is something we rely on every day – almost every hour of every day. But for 663 million people who don’t have access to clean water and sanitation, water becomes the key to life. Access to clean drinking water can help children and families become safer, stronger and smarter.  


Want a sense of how pledges help transform lives?

Here’s what water pledgers like you helped communities and World Vision Canada achieve in just one year of support:    

  • 1 new and 15 renovated water sources began providing access to safe water and are protecting children and families against waterborne diseases
  • 8 groups of local champions began ensuring that people received access to water sources and knew about water safety
  • 10 people were trained on how to repair and maintain water sources, ensuring safe water access for children and families
  • 400 young people learned about the importance of water safety, proper sanitation and hygiene to stay healthy
  • 6,983 people received safe water for drinking and cooking thanks to new and repaired water sources
