Water for Life

Clean and safe water is the key to life.

Water for Life: Nearly every single living organism needs water to survive. Yet across the globe, ONE IN EVERY NINE people do not have access to clean water. 

Without water to drink, people can’t live. Without water for their crops and livestock, they can’t eat enough or earn a living. If their water isn’t clean, they won’t be healthy. If their water comes from a faraway source, they have to spend their days seeking it instead of going to school or earning an income – this affects women and girls the most.

A United Nations publication, Safe Water as the Key to Global Health, stated: “No other single intervention is more likely to have a significant impact on global poverty than the provision of safe water.”

It is the key to immunity and health, helping families prevent disease and early death. It is the key to ensuring children are able to go to school and grow into their full potential. It is the key to empowering girls and women so they can reclaim their health, dignity, safety and success.

The key to a healthy life starts here. With water. With you.
The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
