Water is Life
“When the water did not flow out at all, I had to look for water in a river 500 metres from here. After I brought it home, the water was then used by my family for drinking. We washed our clothes directly at the river,” says Martius*, a child living in Indonesia, Ende. There is a water tap near his home but often, the water did not flow.
The travels to the river put Martius at risk of getting into accidents. His mother often worried for her children but was left with no choice.
Thankfully, all that is in the past, now that Martius’ family can benefit from the newly constructed water pipeline in their village. It was built in partnership between World Vision and the local community.
“My children are glad for this better access to clean water. One of the watertaps is located just behind my home and the water flows well,” says Martius’ mother.
Visit Indonesia, Ende with us and witness how World Vision is working to improve water, sanitation and hygiene issues to help children like Martinus grow up in a safe and healthy environement. Learn how child sponsorship holistically improve the lives of children and their communities.

Yeat's life was transformed when he was sponsored under World Vision's Child Sponsorship Programme. He was so happy to be able to go back to school to live out his dreams.
"I have always been inspired by World Vision staff, now I dream to graduate university and be a teacher!"
World Vision has also provided basic necessities like easier access to clean water and proper sanitation hygiene lessons, so children do not fall sick as often as they used to.
However, there is still more to be done to ensure that families like Yeat's will be empowered with skills to live a hopeful and bright future. Many children in Cambodia still suffer from hunger and poverty, deprived of opportunities to live out their dreams. Come meet them and share your love to these children!
