The best charity is giving water 

Water charity is the most rewarding of all as water is the key to all life. Yet across the globe, a staggering 785 million people are going thirsty each and every day. Without safe and clean water to drink, these people are at risk of dehydration, disease and at worse: death. Your water donation is a vital means of survival for so many who don’t have access to this basic human necessity. Donate to our water appeal and help save lives.


“The best charity is giving water to drink, and He was the most generous in giving charity.”

Hadith of the Prophet ﷺ | Ahmed

Every day communities across the globe are in need of safe sources of water for drinking, washing, cooking, rearing livestock and watering crops. Yet for these millions of people, this simple essential is out of reach.

Provide clean water to someone like Roha

Raho lives in Somalia, which is dangerously close to famine alongside other countries in East Africa. Four solar-powered boreholes can supply enough safe, clean water for 4,000 people. This prevents the spread of waterborne diseases and enables communities to grow and cook food for their families.

“Water is essential – I use it for cooking, washing clothes, and washing myself.” – Raho

Give the gift of life-saving water.

How your water donation changes lives

When you donate a water pump or build a well for communities in need of access to safe and clean drinking water, you are helping to provide life.

Water is the source of all life, and by helping communities to build and rebuild infrastructure to facilitate clean, safe drinking water and sanitation, you’re not only giving people the means for life, but you’re preventing them from a myriad of terrors that a lack of water poses.

With your support, Islamic Relief has been able to provide clean water and infrastructure to over 844,000 people across 19 countries through our WASH projects to enable clean water for life.

Sustainable and innovative solutions, such as our micro dam project provide clean water for communities in Mali, but it also tackles food insecurity by storing rainwater for crops and irrigation. The impact of your water donation is multi-fold.

Solar powered borehole well

Solar powered boreholes are life-changing. Using electricity powered by the sun, water is pumped from deep within the ground to provide clean, safe drinking water for communities in need of access to this basic human life-source. In fact, just 4 boreholes can provide enough water for a staggering 4,000 people. This simple but effective solution saves lives.

Building wells

For thousands of vulnerable people living in remote areas, harmed by food and water insecurity, safe and clean water wells can be a life-changing solution. Our ring wells provide safe drinking water for an incredible 1,500 people in need, while our water ponds minimise water-loss for areas affected by extremely hot weather and environmental shocks.  Our water solutions are designed with the local population and environment in mind, to ensure that access to this basic human right is provided in the most efficient way. Donate water charity now.

Water Charity: Sustainable sources of clean water

Here at Islamic Relief, we’re working worldwide in over 40 countries across the globe to ensure that not only do communities have a safe and reliable source of water for today, but for life too.

When we build a water system, we ensure communities have a sustainable source of clean water for years to come. We recognise the risk of drought, displacement, and disease and with over thirty years of expertise we know that simply drilling wells and installing water pumps cannot solve the water crisis.

We bypass short-term interventions and high running costs to instead provide long-term sustainable solutions, installing irrigation systems, building water tanks, training communities, distributing hygiene kits, and rehabilitating viable water systems.

Donate clean water charity now and help us to provide men, women, and children clean and safe water, an essential we all take for granted.
