Charity to raise funds for clean water for children

TAIPEI -- World Vision Taiwan yesterday appealed to the public for donations to help children in developing countries gain access to clean drinking water.

Around 768 million people around the world still do not have access to clean water and millions, many of them children, die each year from water, sanitation and hygiene-related diseases, the charity said, citing United Nations figures.

Having to walk long distances to collect water every day has also prevented many children from going to school, World Vision Taiwan said in making its appeal.

Donations can be made through the charity's Chinese website. The funds will go to digging wells, developing water resources and providing hygiene and sanitation education in countries including Myanmar, Mali, Mozambique, Niger and Lesotho, the charity said.
