Water Wednesday

The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)

“When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.” (hadith of the Prophet ﷺ, narrated by Muslim)

Ongoing charity – sadaqah jariyah – is one of the most valuable acts we can do in this life, which continues benefiting us in the next, even after we have left the earth.

Islamic Help's water projects usually last at least 10-15 years on average and can provide water daily for an entire village. This includes providing safe drinking water, cooking, washing clothing, feeding lifestock, growing crops and hygiene to prevent the spread of diseases and help reduce deaths. 

One of the biggest challenges that face areas suffering from poverty, famine or drought is the lack of access to clean water for drinking and sanitation purposes. Water is fundamental to life yet even today millions of people, particularly those living in third world countries, have little to no access to it.

Islamic Help has always been mindful of water sanitation, providing residents of affected areas with clean drinking water. One of the ways to provide residents with access to this water is by digging wells and installing water plants. We undertake such projects whenever there is a serious need. Recently, our projects have been concentrated in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Tanzania.
