Poisoned by dirty water

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,“The best charity is giving water to drink” and he was the most generous in giving charity. (Ahmad)

Providing clean water in Gaza is one of the most rewarding ways to give this Ramadan – with blessings for three different reasons: providing the best of charities, giving a Sadaqah Jariyah, and because good deeds in Ramadan are multiplied many times over.

You’ll also be providing clean water to one of the most marginalised communities in the world.

£120 - Provide eight Palestinians with long-term clean water through our desalination plant in Gaza.

£45 – Provide three Palestinians with long-term clean water through our desalination plant in Gaza.

£25 – Provide one Palestinian with long-term clean water through our desalination plant in Gaza.

The bombs that fell on Gaza last Ramadan decimated the water system. Sewage networks were destroyed, flooding streets with dangerous water.

A desalination plant, which a quarter of a million people relied on for clean water, was damaged and out of service, as were water pipes distributing water to 800,000 people.

Families in Gaza have to spend 1/3 of their income just on water because 97% of mains water in Gaza is unsafe to drink.

Giving water is considered the best of charities in Islam but, even today, many people in Gaza still struggle to access this basic human right.

Give from just £15 and reap the multiplied blessings of the holy month while helping a person to have clean water.

Polluted water: Gaza’s silent killer

97% of water in Gaza is undrinkable, forcing families like Noha’s to spend a third of their income on water. In fact, the single biggest cause of death among children in Gaza is drinking contaminated water.

Noha doesn’t let her other children swim in the sea anymore, and she’s forced to buy mineral water to protect them from the pollution in the tap water.

Give clean water, reap the blessings for years to come

Donate to our Gaza water appeal, and you’ll help us to build a desalination plant – including three wells – in Rafah, providing safe drinking water to up to 60,000 people for 15 years. It’s a beautiful act of Sadaqah Jariyah, providing blessings year after year.

Charity brings protection

Charity brings mercy upon those who receive as well as those who give. It’s an incredible blessing to be able to give, no matter how little, as charity offers blessings and protection in this life and the hereafter, and transforms the lives of people facing hardship around the world.

“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
