Three year old Aaron drinks water from a water jar constructed by World Vision for his household in 2014. Young as he is, Lubega likes to draw his own water from the jar without disturbing his elders. His elder brother Kigozi says that the family no longer fall sick sick since they started drinking clean water from the jar. The jar traps rain water. 

Water is a basic necessity, but for some communities it took years before they could enjoy it. In Ntwetwe sub-county, a World Vision Uganda-funded Area Development Programme, boreholes and household water jars were only installed between 2013 and 2014.

Before that, access to clean water was difficult, as people had to walk very long distances before reaching a water point. Even then, the water sources were dirty ponds scattered in villages shared by both animals and people.

Mercy lives with her mother, Millicent, her older sister, Michelle and her younger sister Emmy in Kenya. Life has changed so much since she received her wheelchair. Her Mother no longer has to carry her to school since she got the wheelchair, which is half a kilometre away.

Mercy has a table that comes with the wheelchair and makes it comfortable for her to write her homework well, while her mother tailors clothes on a sewing machine.

It is also easier and safer for her to move around her compound on her wheelchair and assist in chores. Mercy feeds chicken at their homestead once she is from school. Mercy can also enjoy the freedom of playing 'make belief cooking games' with her sister Michelle after school.

Mercy can wheel herself to the front of the class and explain a lesson written on the blackboard to her class mates. Something she could never do before receiving her wheelchair. The little boys behind her look very impressed.

Shaira dances while singing her one, two, threes at a Child Friendly Space set up in northern Cebu in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. 

"When the children arrives a few months ago, they looked shocked. They were afraid, hesitant. They weren't happy. 

They watched their houses fall down and their schools get destroyed. Their faces were hopeless, " says Annie Rose Labra, a Child Friendly Space Facilitator in north Cebu. "Children have returned to normal, they're happy again."
