Every living thing is made of water and it is without doubt the most basic and essential necessity for human survival. Without it, a person would be able to last for 3 days. However, dirty, contaminated water spreads disease rapidly and also leads to fatal consequences.
When we are blessed to literally have fresh, clean water on tap, it is hard to picture the plight of almost one third of the planet who struggle to access even the most basic of water supplies. As well as being vital for survival and sanitation, safe and easily available water is intrinsically linked to improved economic growth and significant poverty reduction. It is therefore no surprise that the Prophet (PBUH) said,
‘The best form of charity is to give someone water (to drink).’ (Ibn Majah)
Blindness – trachoma is the world’s leading cause of preventable blindness resulting from poor hygiene and sanitation. Approximately 41 million people suffer from active trachoma and nearly 10 million people are visually impaired or irreversibly blind as a result of trachoma
Global Relief Trust have been responsible for repairing and constructing water systems wherever they are needed the most. From simple hand pumps to entire water systems, with your support, we can ensure that people do not die from thirst or water related illnesses. A water system is a truly worthy project that will benefit countless communities immediately and for generations to come.
A hand pump can cost from as little as £150 in Pakistan up to £25,000 for water desalination unit units in Gaza. A rewarding sadaqah jariya project for yourself or on behalf of a loved one.
