Globally, 785 MILLION people lack access to clean water.
At least 2 BILLION people in the world get their water from contaminated sources.
Drinking dirty water can cause diseases such as cholera, typhoid and diarrhoea, which kills millions of people every year. In many parts of the world, women and children walk for hours across dangerous terrain in search of water. The water they are able to find is often dirty, carrying disease. Nobody should have to live like this. Help us make fresh, clean water accessible to everyone; build a well with your donation today to save countless lives through our Water For Life appeal.
At Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, we are continually working with people to provide basic sanitation systems and access to safe drinking water.
At Al Mustafa Welfare, we believe that clean water is a right for everyone and we are committed to making sure it is!
From water pumps to water purification plants, we are making sure that families all over the globe are drinking fresh water, without fear of waterborne diseases. Our water projects are currently active in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Burma, where our teams on the ground are diligently working to dig wells equip with hassle free water pumps, set up water purification plants to filter clean water to rural communities and using sunlight to provide clean, safe water for everyone.
When we give water, we give life. Some of the benefits of providing clean water are:
-Stopping the spread of disease, and keeping everyone healthy
-Supporting children to go to school
-Women no longer spend hours collecting water, so they can work and raise their families
-Families do not spend extra money on medical bills from getting ill due to dirty water
-Women and children are safer as they are not walking for miles
A small donation of £200, one of our life-saving Water For Life projects will help provide clean water a community in need, making thousands of people happy, healthy and well hydrated.
We build Water Purification Plants in communities facing severe water shortages. These plants use a system of reverse osmosis, and advanced technology. It begins by taking in unfiltered water through a low-pressure feed pump, in the process of pre-filtration. It cleanses the water of any turbidity, sand & any other dust particles that may be present. Then the water, through multi stage pumps, passes from high pressure in membranes, and all the unwanted dissolved solids are separated from the water. They are sent into a drain via the waste water line, while the clean water is stored in product water tank. The system and the clean water tank are verified in accordance with World Health Organisation standards. An Ultra Violet lamp is installed in the product water line to make the water free from bacteria. This Reverse Osmosis plant provides 2,000 litres fresh and clean water every hour.
In many parts of the world, water hand pumps cannot be installed, as clean water is too far below the ground, sometimes as deep as 3000 ft. In these situations, normal wells will only collect dirty, contaminated water. When this happens, in places like Tharparkar in Pakistan, Al Mustafa Welfare Trust installs Solar Water Wells to help provide an environmentally-friendly water resource for communities that utilises renewable energy, through sunlight. Solar Water Wells situated close to needy communities and provide clean, safe water for free to entire communities.
So far, we have provided over 8 million vulnerable people with access to safe, clean water, Alhamdulillah! With the support of our generous donors like yourself, we have been able to provide safe drinking water to some of the world’s poorest communities and change their lives for the better.
Water is one of the most basic necessities of human life, but unfortunately, millions of people are trapped in a cycle of poverty and disease due to not having access to clean drinking water.
