See what it's like to be a woman in this role.

Water changes everything, and access to clean water creates a ripple effect of positive impact across whole communities.

Read about Dr. Greg Allgood's latest trip to Mali, where World Vision Mali's water team just provided their 1,000th water well since 2003!

Rebel atrocities in Mali

While French and Malian troops continue their drive to force rebels out of major centers in northern Mali, World Vision communications manager Maria Mutya Frio spoke to those who have fled conflict zones.

Pray for the people of Mali

Mali enjoyed two decades of democratic rule until the growing rebel insurgency led to a military coup in March 2012, leaving the former French colony with a weakened government. World Vision began working here in 1975 and is especially concerned for displaced children and families as fighting escalates in the north. Please join World Vision in prayer for the people of Mali.
