Water is the best charity

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

About the Appeal

When we give water, we give life. Unsafe and dirty water is the root cause of over 80% of all deaths in impoverished communities worldwide. A lack of clean water is costing lives, and putting huge strains on families to fight illness and seek clean water miles away. By building a water well or a hand pump, you’ll help to save lives, boost health, uplift communities and break cycles of poverty.

Why Clean Water Matters

Billions of people around the world often have no choice but to drink dirty, contaminated water. This water spreads diseases and illnesses among communities who are already vulnerable without access to quality healthcare. In Pakistan alone, 100,000 people die every year from waterborne diseases, half of whom are children.

In Pakistan, over 21 million people do not have access to clean water. Climate change, reduced rainfall and increased drought is having a catastrophic impact on communities, and this figure is likely to rise drastically in the next few years.

Without access to clean water near their homes, millions of women and children walk for miles each day to collect water from a nearby water source, which is often dirty and unsafe. Walking for miles, women and children are at huge risk of attack by people and animals, sunstroke and exhaustion. It also means they spend hours each day walking for water, when they could be using this time for education, supporting their family, working, resting or praying. The need for water is a leading cause why so millions of children in Pakistan are out of school.

Here at Children of Adam, we’re building water hand pumps to help combat these issues and ensure that no one struggles without clean water.

 Build a water hand pump today

By building a water hand pump, you’ll ensure vulnerable and impoverished families and communities have clean drinking water close to their homes. This will help combat the spread of disease, and help to save lives. As women and children no longer need to walk for miles, they will have more time to do as they wish and to truly flourish. Water can also be used for crops and animals, helping families with their own nourishment and building a livelihood.

Building a water well is more than just quenching thirst – you’ll empower families and women, educate children, boost health, save lives and uplift communities, helping to break cycles of poverty.

Sa’d ibn Ubadah reported: “He said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, the mother of Sa’d has died, so what is the best charity I may give on her behalf?’ The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, ‘Water.’ Sa’d dug a well and he said, ‘This is for the mother of Sa’d.’“

[Abu Dawud]
