Give clean water - transform lives for good
A staggering 780 million people around the world lack access to clean water.
Clean water charity is so important to us as Muslims; the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) once said, “The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
Observe Muharram 2021, a month of blessings and remembrance by giving the precious gift of water to those in need.
The Importance of Building a Well
Reliable access to safe, clean water means that drinking, cooking, washing, watering crops and animals and making wudu no longer pose a risk of illness.
It also means that women and children don’t have to walk for miles to collect – often dirty – water. The average distance that women and children walk to collect water in Africa and Asia is 3.7 miles, carrying around 20 litres of water.
Now – just think of what your water well charity can do. Your water well charity, which you give by donating a well, can help people stay healthy, grow their own food, have time for children to go to school or for women to start their own businesses.
A simple well gives the less fortunate a chance to break free from poverty and transform their lives for years to come.

Your feedback report contains:
