Give Water, Save Lives
Plagued by drought and erratic weather
In large parts of the world unpredictable weather patterns lead to severe drought. Drought has a domino effect – first, there is no water to drink and second, crops fail. With no food, families begin to starve and there is no surplus to sell for a small income.
Without an income, families cannot fulfil their most basic needs or buy essential equipment for other income-generating activities to lift themselves out of poverty.
Sustainable water projects
It is vital that we put in place sustainable water projects to help mitigate the effects of drought. Islamic Relief has been working to build farmer’s resilience and increase their ability to adapt to climate change to help eliminate #DryDays.
Our recent project in Somaliland rehabilitated existing water sources, erected water tanks and installed irrigation systems to enable farmers to continue to produce food during periods of drought.
