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.
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.
