In today's Q&A, Lisa Bos -- World Vision's policy adviser for health, education, and WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) in Washington, D.C. -- describes the Water for the World Act and explains why this new legislation is vital for providing clean water where it's most needed. Lisa is an expert when it comes to this bill -- she helped write it!
Today, World Vision U.S. president Rich Stearns and his wife, Reneé, are releasing two new books! He Walks Among Us: Encounters With Christ in a Broken World is a book of devotionals, and God's Love For You is a Bible storybook for kids.
Below is "Indoor Plumbing" -- a devotional from Rich about clean water in Ghana and the living water of the Holy Spirit.
There is no need for people to suffer because of filthy water. That's why World Vision, the Clinton Global Initiative, and Procter & Gamble are calling on friends, supporters, and partners to come together for the Flash Flood for Good.
Rich Stearns, president of World Vision U.S., calls us all to make a difference today.
Every day, 2,000 children die from diarrhea caused by unsafe water. World Vision is the chosen implementing partner of Flash Flood for Good, a social media movement to bring clean water to children. Join the movement!
Twelve-year-old Confiance looked up at former President Bill Clinton, who rested his hand on her shoulder. I doubt she really knew who this man was, but she knew that it was a big deal he was visiting this Rwandan school.
And here she was, one of two children chosen to help demonstrate how a life-saving water purification system works.
What do you know about water?
Before I went to Lebanon, I knew that it is life-saving and that clean water is key to preventing diseases. But I never realized how much its value extends beyond that. I never understood the dignity and comfort that it can offer people in hard times -- until this past month.
On Saturday, Chelsea Clinton, board member of the Clinton Foundation, visited a remote village near Pathein, Myanmar, to see the partnership between World Vision and Procter & Gamble (P&G) to provide clean water to children.
P&G’s Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program has provided 6 billion liters of clean drinking water to children and families around the world, a milestone marked on this visit.
“My overshirt is off, my hat is off, and I’m really sucking air at this point.”
This is a snapshot of Mark Smith struggling with a 55-pound jug of water in the middle of sweltering Ethiopia. It certainly isn’t where you’d expect to find the owner of the most successful Harley Davidson shop in the United States.
In today's Q&A, Randy Strash, World Vision's senior manager of water, sanitation, and hygiene programs (WASH), delves into the effectiveness of our work to bring clean water and improved sanitation and hygiene to the communities we serve.

Today's post comes to us from Carolyn Baas, whose daughter, Bella, is featured in the video "I Like Bugshells," which originally appeared on the "I Like Giving" blog. Bella's generosity at just 5 years old has inspired many others to demonstrate a giving spirit -- and just might change the world. See how!
Today is World Water Day. Help World Vision and our partners bring sustainable access to clean water -- and the health, economic, and educational benefits it provides -- to the world.
Here's what we're doing:

The global water crisis is a silent killer that takes the lives of more children every year than HIV and malaria combined. More than 2,000 children die every day because of unclean water, poor hygiene, and lack of sanitation. But there is great hope. This is a crisis that we know how to address.
A few years ago, water at home was just a dream for the people of the 23rd Colony in Thanamalwila, Sri Lanka. Three tube wells provided drinking water for the entire village. Nalika, 18, and her family had to walk three kilometers to collect water from the lake. Nalika hardly had time to study and was always tired.
More than 10,000 Cambodians cross the border into Thailand every day to earn a living. Among the throng of workers and peddlers are children like Horm, who gathers recyclable trash and sells his gleanings at Rong Kluea market.
He is only 10, but he already works like a man. Between his rounds, he drops by a World Vision learning center to play. It is at this center where he experiences just a few moments of being a child.
