Water is vital for survival yet, 785 million people in the world live without access to clean water. A child dies every 20 seconds due to poor sanitation and contamination. Water-related diseases routinely kill millions of people in the developing world every year but you can help.
You can build a hand-pump water well or a deep community well that provides a number of families and their children with enough clean and fresh water to drink, wash, cook and grow their own crops.
From just £21 per month, you can build a well in South Asia that allows a water-scarce community to benefit from a safe and sustainable water source, that’s just 70p a day.
Provide clean water in:
People do not have access to clean, safe water
People don’t have access to a basic toilet
A child dies from infection caused by lack of safe water
Water wells transform the long-term prospects of communities, and they are the best protection we have against water-related diseases.
We provide clean fresh water for proper sanitation, drinking and bathing, feeding livestock and watering crops and gardens. We believe every child should be in school and not risk their lives and walk miles to collect undrinkable dirty water for their families.
The best charity is giving water to drink”
Prophet Muhammad (saw)
