Sustainable clean water for 14,000 people
Indeed, those men and women who give in charity and lend to Allah a good loan will have it multiplied for them, and they will have an honourable reward. (Quran 57:18)
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.
Sustainable clean water for a Yemeni community
£3,500 – Provide one share in our water rehabilitation project, which will provide sustainable clean water to a total of 14,000 people.
Yemen’s vulnerable families have survived the war but more than 60% of families have to trek long distances to collect water. Vulnerable families also lack suitable latrines, toilets, and waste management.
With your help, we want to rehabilitate two water sources, two livestock water ponds, and install a solar powered water well and water tank, as well as water pumps and taps to distribute the water to 2,000 families in to communities in Lahj.
In all, this project will rehabilitate two water sources in Bany Mareh and Baraqish, ensuring the water produced clean, tested, and safe. We’ll also install a solar powered pump system, taps, and a livestock water reservoir, and a water tank in each community. Through your support, families will be able to drink clean water, prepare their meals, and wash themselves without having to worry about dangerous dirty water. They’ll also be able to provide clean water to livestock, helping to support local livelihoods.
Give your sadaqah in Yemen and help us provide clean water sources and improve a vulnerable community’s health and hygiene. Right now we’re working to provide community clean water access, including:
This project helps vulnerable families access clean water and improve their health and livelihoods. Eligible families chosen for the project are also facing hardship in feeding their families, recovering from illness, and following good hygiene practices, with priority given to women-led households.
All of our current projects are Zakat-applicable, and you can calculate what you owe with our easy-to-use Zakat calculator.
