Aziz is very happy that he no longer needs to make long trips to fetch water, thanks to the water supply system installed by World Vision.
Roads in rural Afghanistan are often rough. Children need to walk for some three to six hours just to fetch water.
It is often the children, both boys and girls, who are responsible for fetching water for the entire family. They can be as young as just a few years old.
Funds raised from this event will support World Vision to provide water supply facilities, food security and livelihood assistance in Afghanistan, with the aim to assist children and families who have lost their livelihoods and homes due to adverse environmental conditions. Your generosity will help rebuild their lives, restore their health and rekindle hope.
