Dorcas is 9 and lives in the Bulanda community in Zambia.
When World Vision first met her, she was gathering water four times each day from a disgusting water hole, in which animals sometimes died. Dorcas was often sick with diarrhea.
But life is turning around for Dorcas! See the change in her life through photos.
This water hole in Zambia was the only source of drinking water for the people of Bulanda. When this photo was taken last summer, two cows had recently fallen in, and the people had discovered dog fur floating in it—when they dug around the bottom with a stick, a dead, decaying dog had risen to the surface.
