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 risk dehydration, disease and at worse: death. Donate to our water appeal and help save lives.
When there is no rain, there is nothing to harvest or eat. Our existing waterholes are full of diseases. We try to filter it by tipping water from one bucket into another through a rag, but that only does so much – it doesn’t filter out the toxins.
Beyond food, drink and washing, we use water to mould sand into bricks – they become homes, schools, mosques, health centres and other buildings.
Islamic Relief built a solar powered borehole. Clean water is such a blessing, and I thank you for helping us access it.
When we see poverty and hardship, if we have wealth, we have a choice. Use the power that Allah has given you to save lives and lift people out of poverty.
This Ramadan you can help us reach even more vulnerable people. Your donations change lives and have a lasting impact. Donate today.
