Giving water is considered the best of charities in Islam but, even today, many people in Gaza still struggle to access this basic human right. In fact, the single biggest cause of death among children in Gaza is drinking contaminated water.
The entire population of the Gaza Strip depends on one single aquifer for water, which is chronically contaminated by saltwater and sewage. 97% of water in Gaza is undrinkable, forcing families in Gaza to spend a third of their income to buy water, often at extortionate rates.
It is unacceptable that 97% of Gaza’s water supply is contaminated by seawater, sewage and chemicals.
Give clean water, reap the blessings for years to come
Donate to our Gaza water projects this Ramadan, and you’ll help us to build a desalination plant – providing safe drinking water to up to 60,000 people for 15 years. It’s a beautiful act of Sadaqah Jariyah, providing blessings year after year.
