“The best charity is giving water to drink and He was the most generous in giving charity.”
Water is the key to all life. Yet across the globe, a staggering 785 million people are going thirsty each and every day.
Without safe and clean water to drink, these people risk dehydration, disease and at worse: death.
Every day communities across the globe are in need safe sources of water for drinking, washing, cooking, rearing livestock and watering crops. Yet for these millions of people, this simple essential is out of reach.
Here at Islamic Relief, we’re working worldwide in over 40 countries across the globe to ensure that not only do communities have a safe and reliable source of water for today, but for life too.
When we build a water system, we ensure communities have a sustainable source of clean water for years to come. We recognise the risk of drought, displacement and disease and with over thirty years of expertise we know that simply drilling wells and installing water pumps cannot solve the water crisis.
We bypass short-term interventions and high running costs to instead provide long-term sustainable solutions; installing irrigation systems, building water tanks, training communities, distributing hygiene kits and rehabilitating viable water systems.
Help us to provide men, women and children clean and safe water, an essential we all take for granted.
