Water: the best of charities
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.
One donation, many solutions
£35 provides one student or teacher with access to improved sanitation facilities at their school in Syria.
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.
