Our Varied Approach to Water

Each year, over 800,000 people die from water-related illnesses. In the developing world, unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health of communities.

Muslim Hands works worldwide to provide people with access to clean water and sanitation. We work with a wide range of communities so our approach reflects this. We tailor our solutions to specific problems by assessing the need for water on an individual basis.

We construct wells that can extract water from up to 80 meters below the ground, in barren deserts, where rainfall is scarce. In villages that rely on toxic water sources we install filtration systems and we carry out sanitation projects in crowded settlements.

In many developing countries, knowledge about health and hygiene is lacking. We take a holistic approach to our water schemes, as with all the areas that we work in. Muslim Hands provide education programmes, training people to keep their water sources clean and to use water safely

Muslim Hands understand that to provide clean water and sanitation requires a lot of responsibility even after construction ends. To make sure that water is safe to use, we carry out water testing and we support local people in maintaining projects when delivering our programmes.
