Sustainable water sources in Yemen
“The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
It is difficult to overstate how devastating conditions are for Yemeni families, who face the brutal combination of war, cholera, famine, continuing hunger and crippled health systems. Water and hygiene facilities in rural areas are collapsing, and there is an urgent need for safe water supplies.
Help provide lifesaving water
Over the coming months, we’ll be supporting 10,500 of the most vulnerable people in Sana’a by rehabilitating water sources, solar-powered pumps, and water tanks, as well as installing a total of four water points, delivering 250,000 litres to 50 areas.
Our water quality checks will ensure water remains safe, and we’ll also train the community to maintain the equipment, and establish a water management committee.
Your donations will also help us to distribute hygiene kits, deliver hygiene promotion sessions to 1,500 men and women, and provide guidance about avoiding cholera to families.
£20 provides one person with access to safe, life-sustaining water.
£60 provides three people with access to safe, life-sustaining water.
£200 provides ten people with access to safe, life-sustaining water.
Donate and help to provide a sustainable solution to a desperate water scarcity in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.
