Saad Ibn Ubadah asked the Prophet (PBUH) what charity is best, to which the Prophet replied, “A drink of water.”
Water is mentioned 63 times in the Quran, and every prophet in our holy book has a story that relates closely to water. It’s no wonder that providing water is considered one of the greatest charities in Islam.
Around the world, 2 billion people use a drinking water source that is contaminated by faeces. Some 842,000 people die every year from diarrhoea because they rely on unsafe water. With your help we can change this.
This year we want to support communities struggling with extreme water shortage or contamination - in Pakistan and Mogadishu - as well as those whose water infrastructure has been decimated by war, in Yemen Syria and Gaza.
Clean water saves lives, but it also creates jobs, improves health, and empowers people. Together, we can ensure that vulnerable communities can have access to clean, safe water for years to come. Help us to provide the best of charities.
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.
