The poor in Afghanistan have no option but to drink from dirty and infested waters and from the same rivers they defecate in, leading to disease and painful deaths. A child in Afghanistan dies from drinking dirty water every 20 seconds. That’s 4,000 children every day whose deaths could have been prevented with access to clean water.
We are working in communities to get them access to safe water. 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 with.
From just £21 per month, you can build a well in Afghanistan that allows a water-scarce community to benefit from a safe and sustainable water source, that’s just 70p a day.
Destroyed Afghanistan’s water infrastructure
Have access to clean water and sanitation
Due to dirty 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)
