1 in every 3 people do not have access to clean water to drink around the world. Millions drink unclean, unsafe water that harbour waterborne diseases which spread among communities. Women and children are forced to walk each day in dangerous conditions and terrains just to fetch clean water, when they should be at home or at school

At World Appeal, our water projects are designed to provide access to safe clean those affected for years to come. We are on a mission to provide long-term solutions to water scarcity in a world that is becoming increasingly affected by climate change.  With your water donation, we can put a stop to women and children having to walk for miles each day just to access their basic right, clean water.

For Just £150, you can make a difference to these communities this Ramadan

In 2016, UNICEF estimated that 200 million hours a day are spent by women and girls around the world just collecting water.

Women Carrying Water on their heads

As part of your donation, we are able to further develop these communities by providing access to education which otherwise would have been lost whilst these young children are out in the harsh conditions just looking for water. Mothers are stress and worry free that they can spend the time needed with their children and families as opposed to being out all day in search or sustainable water.

By Providing access to clean water, you are helping these communities by protecting them from  water-borne diseases which is the root problem for majority of all illnesses in the third world countries.

With just £150, we can transform their lives by installing a simple water handpump close to their home to eradicate the many long hours a day spent walking miles just for clean water so that they can focus on improving their family income and wellbeing. Your donation ensures that families are less worried about heavy medical bills by consuming safe, clean water.

A handpump is a small but efficient which can support a household or a small communal area with access to clean drinking water. Currently we are supporting the installation of water handpumps in Asia and Africa.

What we have done so far

Since starting in 2021, we have installed over 60 water handpumps throughout Asia & Africa benefiting 540 people.

Upon completion of a water handpumps, donors receive a personalised handpump certificate which includes a picture of their sponsored handpump benefiting the local community as well as the location of where it has been installed.

Your can also have a Handpump installed in the name of any individual you like, whether living or in memory of a loved one who has passed. This act in it’s self is Sadaqah Jarriyah as communities will benefit from every drop of water they use for years to come, With this in mind, the amount of blessings and rewards are limitless.

For Just £3,000, you can make a difference to these communities this Ramadan

Access to clean water can transform the life of one individual to entire communities. Community water wells can serve more than 1,000 people which are often located in arid areas where water scarcity is particularly high.

The wells are wide and deep, making them dependable during all seasons. These water wells provide enough clean water for families, livestock and crops.

Note: A water well can take up to 9-12 months from start to completion, in certain locations, the wells can only be constructed during certain times of year.

Wells may be constructed with a pump or with a bucket at the discretion of our expert teams on the ground, based on factors that determine which is most suitable on a case-by-case basis.

World Appeal do not implement water wells and then move on. We have contracts and agreements in place to make sure the wells and pumps continue to function year on year.

How Serious is the Water Crisis?

The stats relating to the global water crisis are nothing short of being alarming, with men, women, and children all suffering. Some of the most damning figures are:

  • 2 billion people– one-third of the global population are without easy access to clean water
  • 200 million hours– time spent by women in Africa walking to collect water every day
  • 443 million school days– missed by children every year because of poor access to safe water
  • Every 37 seconds– one person dies as a result of an illness caused by dirty water
  • 50% of hospital beds– half of the hospital beds in the developing world are filled with patients with water-related illnesses
  • 2 billion people– the number of people around the world without sanitation

Needless to say, a whole lot more must be done to confront the seriousness of the global water crisis. As sustainable Charity, World Appeal will use your kind donations to install sustainable eco-friendly solar-powered water systems that will bring hope and prosperity to communities around the world.

Key Benefits:

  • Solar-powered water systems offer safe and clean water solutions to communities across the world
  • They are sustainable for the communities that operate them
  • Reduces the time it takes to provide water for people, which helps to reduce the time spent queuing
  • Elevated tanks store the treated water, making it easier for communities to access.
  • The systems require no access to electrical power, which means, they can be placed in remote areas which benefits off-grid communities
  • Majority of systems have a lifespan of 10-plus years with minimal maintenance required, making it an ideal sustainable solution
  • Training only takes a few weeks for someone to learn on how to operate the system.
  • The number of beneficiaries that the system can is between 500-750 people every day
  • It qualifies as Sadaqah Jariyah for you and your loved ones
  • The total system costs £10,000 from start to finish.
  • The donor can opt to have a plaque displayed on the system and to receive a detailed report at the end which will include pictures of the finished system
  • Every £1 invested in safe water yields between £2 and £16 in economic return

Benefits of a Solar-Powered Water System

The benefits of a solar-powered water system are vast, especially for developing communities. World Appeal systems funded by you operate ecologically and in a efficient manner, thus making them a sustainable water well solution that will continue to serve communities for generations.

Because of this, a donation to our Solar-Powered Water appeal qualifies for Sadaqah Jariyah, as the system will provide safe and clean water to the community for years to come – making this a gift that keeps on rewarding, even after you have left this world.

As most communities simply do not have access to safe and clean water, this system will mean that women will not have to walk for hours every day for water and far fewer school days will be missed, meaning children will benefit from a better education.

Water Filtration System

The Messenger (ﷺ) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. [Abu Dawud] ’

Water is the key to all life, and yet billions around the world struggle against poverty to access clean & safe water sources – their basic human need. Al Miftah is committed to ensuring as many families as possible have sustainable & reliable access to water for generations to come.

A Sustainable Solution

At World Appeal, we aim to satisfy the growing demand for safe water in Asia and Africa, whilst reducing the environmental impact associated with it. This has been the driving force behind World Appeals new project, ‘Solar Powered Filtration Plants’. The filtration of groundwater requires energy which is typically supplied from fossil fuels, our solution is by using solar power as it is more environmentally friendly and sustainable therefore reducing our carbon footprint given the growing climate change concerns around the world and providing safe water in rural communities.

The Filtration Plant

The Filtration Plant uses a water purification technology called reverse osmosis which utilises a membrane to treat impure or contaminated water. In this reverse osmosis process, the water is passed through a thin membrane at very high pressure. The pressure causes the water to pass while filtering bigger molecules of impurities including salts and minerals. This process requires a high energy input which can sometimes be difficult in Asian and African regions.

The development of a solar-powered filtration plant means that the energy needed for the process can be gained by mother nature, the Sun, which is our biggest source of energy resulting in a cheaper, greener and more environmentally friendly solution for rural communities.
