Help provide a lifetime of water in Gaza
The Prophet (PBUH) said, “The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
The bombs that fell on Gaza in May decimated the water system. Sewage networks were destroyed, flooding streets with dangerous water. A desalination plant, which a quarter of a million people relied on for clean water, was put out of service, and water pipes distributing water to 800,000 people were damaged. In all, 290 water supply locations were damaged during the escalation. They are in urgent need of repair.
€1,800 – Provide clean water for 100 people in Rafah, helping us to build a desalination plant that will provide 60,000 people with fresh water every day.
Polluted water is Gaza’s silent killer
The UN recognizes access to water as a human right, and giving water is considered the best charity in Islam. But many people in Gaza still struggle to access this basic fundamental 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 salt water and sewage. While most of us turn on the tap without a second thought, families in Gaza are forced to spend a third of their income to buy water, often at extortionate rates.
Give clean water, reap the blessings for years to come
With your help, we’ll build a desalination plant – including three wells – in Rafah, providing safe drinking water to up to 60,000 people for 15 years. It’s not only the best charity you can give but it’s a beautiful act of Sadaqah Jariyah, providing blessings year after year.
Our work in Gaza
We’ve been changing lives in Palestine for 30 years. Our recent work includes building a desalination plant for 15,000 people at Al Aqsa University, supporting over 3,000 children through winter in Gaza, and helping to fight the critical medical crisis by providing 10,000 medicines.
In 2020, you helped us to support a massive 2,442,221 people through our projects in Palestine. We helped improve food security for 81,604 people, supported the healthcare of 100,000 people, and provided clean water and sanitation to 2,244,057 people.
