Give the gift of clean water

A staggering 2.2 billion people don’t have access to clean drinking water. That’s one in three of all people on the planet.

In Gaza, 97% of water is contaminated. Give £15, and provide one person with access to clean water for up to 15 years through our water desalination plant.

£100 will help us to provide clean water, latrines, and a water system for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

£70 will provide 25 people at risk of dehydration in Yemen with fresh, clean drinking water.

£800 will provide a whole community in drought-hit communities with a deep water well, and clean water for years to come.

When a family has access to clean water, it changes everything. Women who had to spend their days walking miles now have the time to earn an income or plant vegetables to feed their families. The children who accompanied them can now attend school. The health of every family in the community is improved, and they no longer have to worry about thirst, waterborne disease, or crops or livestock dying.

It’s no surprise that the Messenger considered water the best of charities. It lifts entire communities out of hardship.

Join us in helping to empower and transform communities, and building brighter futures with clean water.

When you donate a water well, it’ll be installed with a plaque in your name – or in the name of your loved one if you donated it in their honour. Once complete, you’ll receive a feedback report telling you all about how your donation transformed the community, complete with photos of your water well.

Water and Islam

Water is mentioned 63 times in the Quran, and every prophet in our holy book has a story that relates closely to water.

Saad Ibn Ubadah asked the Prophet (PBUH) what charity is best, to which the Prophet replied, “A drink of water.”

Donate, and you’ll support us in transforming communities struggling with extreme water shortages or contamination as well as those whose water infrastructure has been decimated by war.

Why donate with Human Appeal?

We’ve been running water projects for 30 years. That means that we have an incredible amount of expertise, experience, and dedication under our belt. We know what type of water project is needed for the local environment. We build deep tube wells, boreholes, reverse-osmosis unite, solar-powered pumps, and desalination plants, and we know which of this will have the most impact for each community.

We’ve streamlined our projects – our local staff are skilled and knowledgeable, and they’re supported by three decades of experience.

When you help us to install clean water solutions, you don’t just saves lives, you create local jobs, improve health, and empower communities.

Together, we can ensure that vulnerable people can have access to clean, safe water for years to come, and the opportunity to build brighter futures. Provide what the Prophet (PBUH) called the best of charities, transform communities, and reap the blessings of providing sustainable clean water.

Premi’s Story

In order to improve long-term access to safe water, we installed wells and water pumps in Pakistan that will support tens of thousands of people. This year, we will continue this support by establishing six water filtration plants.

Premi told us,

“Before the solar water pump was installed, I used to have to spend three to four hours just to retrieve water from the nearest pump.” It was a trip Premi used to undertake two or three times a day. “Now it only takes a few minutes to get water.”

Human Appeal assists vulnerable people in 22 countries worldwide, both during emergencies when clean water, shelter and food is essential, and throughout the year, helping them to develop sustainable livelihoods, secure access to clean water and improve educational opportunities.
