Thirst Relief

 Give clean water - transform lives for good!


Thanks to your support, Penny Appeal have built an incredible 43,000 wells and water systems, bringing clean water to over 350,000 people! But there are still so many that need our help. 

A staggering 884 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)

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.


Giving water, sustainably

People lack access to clean water for a number of reasons; from drought, to oppression, to a lack of infrastructure. If we’re going to break the poverty cycle, we need smart, sustainable solutions Because of this, we tailor our Thirst Relief programmes so that we have the most suitable, sustainable solution to each individual issue.

Our Thirst Relief appeal offers a range of wells and other sustainable water solutions that you can donate towards to help poor communities throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

You can make a BIG difference from as little as £25 a month; donate to one of our many Thirst Relief programmes today to give the gift of fresh, clean water to those in need.
