Clean Water Is Not A Luxury
It is the moral right of everyone, yet 749 million people live without it. And the consequences of this situation are profound, with diseases from dirty water killing more people each year than all forms of violence, including War.
‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. (Abu Dawud)
COVID-19 and Cleanliness
Many of those in need will know the cleaning requirements needed to minimise the risk of
infection by COVID-19, but will be unable to put them into practice because you can’t clean with
dirty water. And dirty water is all that will be available to many communities. It’s why supplying
them their own source of clean water is so important.
Time To Thrive
When you bring clean water into the heart of a community you give people time to thrive. Because when individuals no longer spend long hours collecting water, children can return to school, families can improve their economic situation, people stop dying from unnecessary diseases.This is why we work so hard on water projects. It is the ultimate Sadaqah Jariyah - a gift that keeps on giving – and why, with your help this Ramadan, we will change the lives of people for years to come.
