The Prophet (SAW) said: “The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
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. Safe water is fundamental to life yet even today millions of people, particularly those living in developing countries, have little or no access to it.
You can make a difference to thousands of people when you give your Zakat or Sadaqah to one of our Major Giving water projects.
These specialised constructions serve large communities suffering from a severe lack of clean water and include solar-powered boreholes, which use the sun’s energy to bring fresh water up from deep underground, and filtration plants which make previously undrinkable water safe for everyday use.
Several locations are available for you to choose from across Africa and Asia.
