Why Donate Towards a Water Project?
Why donate towards a water-related project? Let us digest the facts/statistics below to look at the real issues behind those who don’t have access to clean, sanitary water.
- 771 million people don’t have clean water close to home. (WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) Report 2021)
- Almost 1.7 billion people don’t have a decent toilet of their own. (WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) Report 2021)
- Almost 2.3 billion people lack soap and water for handwashing at home. (WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) Report 2021)
- Every minute a newborn dies from infection caused by a lack of clean water and an unclean environment. (WHO, 2015 & UNICEF 2019/20)
- Diarrhoea caused by dirty water and poor toilets kills a child under 5 every 2 minutes. Based on Prüss-Ustün et al. (2019) and The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (2020)
- Around the world, up to 443 million school days are lost every year because of water-related illnesses. (Human Development Report, 2006)
- If everyone, everywhere had clean water, the number of diarrhoeal deaths would be cut by a third. (Tropical Medicine and International Health, 2014)
World Health Organization
Over 2 billion people live in water-stressed countries, which is expected to be exacerbated in some regions as result of climate change and population growth. Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with faeces.
How You Can Make A Difference
Hand Pumps & WellsDonate Now
Build a water well today in your name, or that of a loved one, and uplift an entire community currently being forced to drink dirty, contaminated water.
All wells are hand pumps, with a depth of around 80 metres and a life expectancy of between 3-5 years. Don’t worry! we will forever maintain these, so the longevity will be for a long time. Each hand pump will be installed in the most drought-hit communities, helping to transform a village and provide clean water to hundreds of people.
Solar Powered WellsDonate Now
There are places where a standard hand pump or a water well are not adequate enough solutions in supplying clean and useable water to communities. Whether that is because of a sufficient lack of water or because the only viable source of water is too far underground for traditional methods. This means the only solution is to build a well deep enough to reach a water source, but one that will need an electrical pump to extract water through.
Whilst it is possible to build one using a diesel generator, this is an incredibly expensive solution due to high fuel costs and requiring regular maintenance.
A Solar Water Well is seen as a better solution thanks to them being proven to be financially, operationally and environmentally more efficient. An initial big expense, the solar wells are able to extract water multiple times a day at a low cost.
Reverse Osmosis Filtration PlantsDonate Now
Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that uses a semi-permeable membrane (synthetic lining) to filter out unwanted molecules and large particles such as contaminants and sediments like chlorine, salt, and dirt from drinking water. Reverse Osmosis systems can remove pollutants from water including lead, pesticides, fluoride, pharmaceuticals, arsenic and much more. And with a carbon filter, the system can also remove chlorine to improve the taste, odour and appearance of your water.
We have been installing these systems within schools, places of worship and villages that do not have access to clean, safe and sanitary drinking water since 2018. Thousands of people have benefited from these systems. Stand-alone systems in remote places will need to be installed in an erected building which may come at an additional cost.
Water TankersDonate Now
In war-torn countries prolonged destruction can affect thousands of people’s ability to access water, moreover, the ongoing war in Syria and Yemen has resulted in a huge cholera outbreak.
Capable of providing up to 30,000 litres, a water tanker affords entire communities with one of the very basic amenities of life. During the decade-long blockade in Gaza, where regular water supply was reduced, tankers helped provide those communities further away from operational towns access to clean water.
Other Water ProjectsDonate Now
Water Coolers: We install water coolers in places of high public footfall, for examples in schools ith the intention of helping to increase school attendance, while providing clean water for months to come. 55% of Pakistan’s public schools have fallen into disrepair and are considered unsatisfactory or unsafe, and 32% don’t have drinking water. This project will support public schools which lack basic drinking facilities in order to have a transformative effect on the maximum number of students and staff.
Ablution Station: this is a necessity for many Muslims to perform ablution up to 5 times a day. Unfortunately many in developing countries do not have access to a clean, hygienic facilities. Our ablution stations vary in size and allow multiple people to use them simultaneously.
