Our donation to World Vision will continue to help children like these all around the world:
Mariama, Niger (6 years old)
Dana Palade/World VisionMariama suffered from trachoma (the world’s leading cause of preventable blindness) due to the dirty water in her village of Zakara Hanou, in Niger. Her mother says that “she got a painful infection in her eyes, and she was crying and hurting all the time.” Because of World Vision, a water pump was built in her community and Miriama received the right medical treatment that saved her eyesight.
Julie M, U.S. (2 years old)
Laura Reinhardt/World VisionWhen Julie M's family was placed in a homeless shelter, World Vision was there to help. World Vision works to provide necessities for disadvantaged children, including personal care items such as clothing & hygiene materials. As kids get ready to go back to school, World Vision helps out by supplying backpacks filled with materials to get the kids prepared. They also provide the shelter with toys and books at Christmas time.
