Drop by Drop: Water Changes Lives

'No intervention has a greater overall impact upon national development and public health than the provision of safe drinking water and the proper disposal of human waste'. [WHO]

Today, two out of every three people in the world lack access to safe water. Despite the massive scale of this crisis, your incredible generosity is allowing us to launch life-saving projects for communities across the globe every day. From constructing new wells to building water filtration plants, you are providing clean drinking water in a variety of ways.

We take a holistic approach to our projects, making sure people know how to use water sources safely, maintain new wells and keep up good health and hygiene practices. Our worldwide teams carry out water testing and set up local committees to manage water projects after they are completed, ensuring our interventions are sustainable and directly managed by the people we are helping.

Recently, you helped us complete our biggest project ever, rehabilitating the water infrastructure in Aden, Yemen to provide water for life to a staggering 1.7 million people! With your continued support, we have also completed the rehabilitation of the water infrastructure in Ma’rib, providing clean water to over 1.2 million people, most of whom are families displaced by conflict in Yemen.

Drop by drop, every donation is making a difference to one more person. Clean water reduces the spread of deadly illnesses, puts more children in school, gives more women the opportunity to work, improves agriculture and ultimately revives and transforms an entire community.

Water for Life in Yemen

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘Indeed, [on the Day of Judgement] I will surely be at the centre of my Basin pushing back people for the people of Yemen. I will strike away from it with my staff until it pours upon them (i.e. the people of Yemen).’ [Muslim]

With your support, we are setting up large-scale sustainable projects to provide safe water for life to families in Yemen. From rehabilitating whole city water networks to installing tanks that harvest rainwater for remote villages, your donations to the Yemen Water Fund are having a huge and lasting impact.

Thanks to you, we are already providing nearly 3 million people in Aden and Ma’rib with water for life, but we need your help to reach even more families in desperate need of clean water and sanitation.
