Tragically, almost 2,000 children are killed by dirty water every day.
Water comes out of a tap or a plastic bottle. It’s always available and accessible. It’s all too easy to take it for granted. But Alhamdulillah, we have cheap, clean and safe water.
Water is the most basic necessity of life, essential for purity, religion and dignity. We need water to drink, to wash, to clean our dishes, clothes, and more. Water is life.
However, for hundreds of thousands of people around the world, water is a scarce precious resource. The world’s poorest, most disadvantaged people cannot afford to take water for granted. For them, ready access to this most basic human need is little more than a dream.
The only water to be found is dirty, distant, or both. Those in the worst affected areas have no choice but to walk miles to the nearest water source every day or drink dirty, unsafe water.
Water is life, but also death. A child will die in the time that it takes you to read this. Yet things don’t have to be this way. There is no easier way to save lives than with the source of all life – water.
Give the gift of water and save lives by donating to a water project with UK Islamic Mission.
Our current water projects include:
- Water Hand Pump – providing water hand pumps to give clean, safe, free water for up to ten families in a rural village
- Water Desalination Plants – providing clean, safe water to thousands of vulnerable children and refugees in Lebanon and Gaza (Palestine)
- Community Water Well – providing community water wells to give clean, safe, free water to up to 50 families in a rural community
A steady supply of clean, safe water can make the world of difference to those who have previously had to go without. Join our donors and support this most important of causes today.
“We made from water every living thing.”
- Quran (21:30)
