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.
Water is an all-purpose element that is used for a variety of things, from cooking to cleaning. Not having a steady supply of water puts entire villages in a severely dire situation.
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.
Wells, Pumps & Plants
One of the quickest and easiest ways to provide drinking water is by digging a well or creating a hand-operated water pump. It is also the most cost-efficient way, which makes water wells a very popular choice in third world countries. They provide water on a small scale, but larger wells and solar powered wells provide drinking water for larger populations.
Donate to Islamic Help and see to it that some of the most barren regions in the world get access to clean drinking water. Everyone who donates can even have a plaque erected at the site, in honour of a loved one. Donors will also receive a report and photo as part of the feedback process.
