Water is one of the basic necessities of human life, but unfortunately, there are millions of people trapped in a cycle of poverty and disease due to not having access to clean drinking water.
Water is one of the essential necessities needed to sustain life. However, although water may be in plentiful supply for those of us here in the UK, there are many millions of people around the world who simply do not have access to clean, safe drinking water.
Countless men, women and children are stuck in a devastating cycle of poverty where thirst and disease are so commonplace that they have become a part of daily life.
These people spend hours of their lives every day walking miles to collect water, which in many cases, is not even clean or safe to use. In these communities, open sewers run past people’s homes, water is scarce, and disease is rife.
At Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, we are continually working with these people to provide basic sanitation systems and access to safe drinking water.

Over one billion people living in poverty across the world struggle to access clean, safe water to use and drink. In addition, dirty water can lead to further health complications and conflict due to the scarcity of water sources.
Each year, 2.75 million people die from water-related diseases. Five children die each minute from water-borne diseases. A staggering 80% of diseases in the developing world are caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.
Many of us are guilty of taking the availability of water for granted, yet for millions of people, accessing this essential resource is one of the most difficult parts of life.
