Niger Thirst Relief Study Case

In Niger, an astounding 17 million of the population of around 20 million people lack access to adequate sanitation, and over 8 million don’t have access to safe water.

This means villagers are forced to drink diseased and polluted water from shallow rivers. They know it will cause them ill health, but they have no other choice.

In Niger alone, there are over 6,000 child deaths every single year from waterborne illnesses. That’s 6,000 children whose deaths could have been prevented with access to clean water.

You can help save lives by building a well.

For millions of people in developing countries getting water is not as simple as turning on the tap. They have to walk for miles to reach the nearest water source. And when they get there the water is dirty and diseased. They drink it knowing it could kill them, but there is simply no other choice.

Help build a Thirst Relief well and you can give families reliable access to safe, clean water. This allows them to drink, wash, make wudu, grow crops and water their animals safely. It will mean they don’t have to spend hours fetching water each day, freeing up time to go to school, work or look after their families. It will mean children will be able to play and learn and do all the things that a healthy young mind should, rather than the bleak prospects they ultimately face right now.

Clean water means healthier lives, improved livelihoods and, ultimately, a route out of poverty and on the road to a better, brighter future.

Our water well appeal is Zakat applicable, and Penny Appeal has a 100% donation policy for all Zakat donations.
