"The villages around my area are very dry, especially in the hottest and driest months such as September and October. The needs of clean water increase while many places become dry. We also rarely take a bath or brush our teeth before school." Icha, 11-year-old living in Indonesia

Dear Friends,

Water is essential to survive. Not just for drinking, but for usage in almost every one of our daily tasks: showering, flushing the toilet, cooking, making coffee, etc. It is something we tend to take for granted - yet clean water is something vital and often lacking for the development and progress of communities trapped in poverty.

Across the globe, women and girls spend a total of 200 million hours (daily!) collecting water from communal water sources. Children are also unable to attend school due to water collection duties or illnesses caused by contaminated water.

About the Charity

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice.

World Vision Singapore is a branch of World Vision International, and is a registered charity with Commissioner of Charities in Singapore.

In planning, implementing and evaluating its work, World Vision staff considers the basic needs of the child and the dynamics of the particular child's community. Does the child have a healthy diet? Is he or she attending school? Does the child have access to adequate health care, clean water, housing and clothing? Do his or her parents have an opportunity to improve the family's condition by growing more food or starting a small business?

All projects are regularly measured against such goals and objectives. Audits are conducted regularly by field staff and occasionally by outside consultants to ensure that the project is on track and is meeting the specific goals established by community leaders and World Vision.

Our help is offered without any reference to the religious faith of those with whom we work. People from Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and animist communities all receive help from World Vision.

World Vision accounts for every dollar. Audits are conducted regularly by external firms to verify the accuracy of World Vision's financial reporting.
