Without clean water, thousands of people die each day.
Today, across the world, 2.1 billion people still do not have access to safe drinking water.

A lack of sanitation and safe drinking water remains one of the biggest threats to life of those living in poverty and under-developed countries.
And whoever saves one (life) - it is as if he had saved all of mankind
Your donation to our Water Appeal can help us deliver WASH projects across the globe (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene).
From the conflict zones of Gaza where basic services have been destroyed, to remote communities in Somalia living with extreme drought, to the refugee camps of Jordan where deprivation is rife – your generosity can help us protect people and quench their thirst.
The donation you give can help us build solar powered water stations, water pipelines and infrastructure, latrines, water stations or dig a well. These can serve schools, villages or war-torn communities.
Your generosity can ensure we can serve whole communities for months or even years, protecting them from disease and giving them their basic human rights. Your donation to our Water Appeal is a Sadaqah Jariyah – a charity that continues to benefit others, saving more and more lives each day.
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased)."
Yemen is one of the world’s most water-scarce countries. The major drought of recent years has worsened the situation, plunging the country into widespread famine. Over half of the Yemeni population remain in urgent need of safe drinking water. 2.5 million children are at immediate risk of disease and death.
Alongside emergency aid, we are working hard to install rainwater harvesting systems to collect seasonal rains and protect communities from further hardship. Our WASH facilities are improving access to water, public health and hygiene. Your donations have helped us support over 6000 people so far as we continue to provide them with life-saving clean water.
In Gaza, 96% of the water available is contaminated by sewage. Unfit for human consumption, it causes life-threatening disease in a region where people are struggling with war and conflict. Your donations have meant that through our partner offices, 83,750 people have been granted access to clean water since the beginning of this year.
Our water desalination plants are solar-powered and installed in schools, kindergartens and health centres. So far, we have installed 51 units, allowing children and community members to access more than 250,000 litres of safe drinking water every day.
Donate today and you can save the lives of families around the world by protecting them from sickness and quenching their thirst.
