Give clean water - transform lives for good!


Access to clean water is a fundamental human right. Thanks to your unwavering support, we have achieved remarkable milestones in our mission to provide clean water to those in need. Together, we've built an astonishing 43,000 wells and water systems – the equivalent of an astounding 9.2 trillion glasses of water - Alhamdulillah!

But we must remember that there are still countless individuals who urgently require our assistance. Shockingly, 884 million people worldwide lack access to clean water, and this is where our Thirst Relief appeal comes into play.


Building a Well: The Ripple Effect of Your Generosity


Reliable access to safe, clean water transforms lives in profound ways. It means that drinking, cooking, washing, and performing wudu no longer pose a risk of illness. It signifies that women and children don't have to struggle for miles to collect often dirty water, carrying heavy loads of around 20 litres.

Funding a water well is more than charity; it's a catalyst for change. A well can:

Ensure Health and Safety: Protect communities from contaminated water, keeping them healthy and safe.

Promote Self-Sufficiency: Enable communities to grow their own food, reducing dependence on others.

Empower Education: Provide children with the time and opportunity to attend school, fostering a brighter future.

Spur Economic Growth: Offer women the chance to start their own businesses, contributing to their financial independence.

A simple well gives the less fortunate a chance to break free from poverty and transform their lives for years to come.

Giving Water, Sustainably

People around the world lack access to clean water for various reasons, from drought to oppression to a lack of infrastructure. To break the cycle of poverty, we need intelligent,

sustainable solutions. This is why we tailor our Thirst Relief programs to address each unique issue with the most suitable and sustainable solutions.

Our Thirst Relief appeal offers a diverse range of wells and other sustainable water solutions that you can donate toward, helping impoverished communities across Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Your support can make an immense difference, starting from as little as £25 a month.

How are the location of wells decided?

Our goal when building wells is to identify areas that are most in need of water. We do this by working with our established partners on the ground who use their local knowledge and expertise to carry out a needs-based assessment, a decision is then made based on these findings. Only then will construction take place.
