Our donation to World Vision will continue to help children like these all around the world:
Iranyitse, Burundi (20 months)
Jon Warren/World Vision,Iranyitse had been suffering from diarrhea for 3 days, growing weaker & weaker. His mom who had already lost three other children due to various illnesses, walked for 3 hours to bring him to the Kizi Health Center in Gasorwe, Burundi. The clinic had run out of medicines until it received a World Vision pharmaceutical shipment. They were able to provide oral hydration, deworming medicine, & amoxicillin to treat Iranyitse and save his life.
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.
