Help provide a lifetime of water in Gaza
The Prophet (PBUH) said, “The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
Forced to drink sewage. The only aquifer in Gaza is polluted by seawater and sewage, making 97% of water there undrinkable. This Ramadan, give the best of charities and help to provide a desalination plant to marginalised people in Palestine, reaping the reward for years to come.
£1,500 – Provide clean water for 100 people in Rafah, helping us to build a desalination plant that will provide 60,000 people with fresh water every day.
Polluted water: Gaza’s silent killer
The UN recognizes access to water as a human right, and giving water is considered the best of charities in Islam. But many people in Gaza still struggle to access this basic fundamental right. In fact, the single biggest cause of death among children in Gaza is drinking contaminated water.
The entire population of the Gaza Strip depends on one single aquifer for water, which is chronically contaminated by saltwater and sewage. 97% of water in Gaza is undrinkable, and, while most of us turn on the tap without a second thought, families in Gaza are forced to spend a third of their income to buy water, often at extortionate rates.
Give clean water, reap the blessings for years to come
With your help, we’ll build a desalination plant – including three wells – in Rafah, providing safe drinking water to up to 60,000 people for 15 years. It’s the best charity you can give, and it’s a beautiful act of Sadaqah Jariyah, providing blessings year after year.
Our work in Gaza
We’ve been changing lives in Palestine for 30 years. Our recent work includes building a desalination plant for 15,000 people at Al Aqsa University, supporting over 3,000 children through winter in Gaza, and helping to fight the critical medical crisis by providing 10,000 medicines.
In 2020, you helped us to support a massive 2,442,221 people through our projects in Palestine, including improving food security for 81,604 people, supporting the healthcare of 100,000 people, and providing clean water and sanitation to 2,244,057 people.
This Ramadan, provide a way out for people forced to drink contaminated water, and multiply your blessings in the hereafter.
Change starts here.
