Safe Water for Somalia
On the authority of Sa‘d ibn ‘Ubadah (ra) who said, ‘I asked, “O Messenger of Allah! Which charity is best?” He [saw] replied, “Providing water”’. (Ibn Majah)
Only 45% of people in Somalia have access to safe drinking water. Your donation will help to ensure families affected by drought and conflict have access to the water they need to not only survive, but to flourish.
Whether its constructing wells or supporting sanitation and hygiene projects, your donation to the Safe Water Fund will completely transform the lives of communities in need:
- Families enjoy better health as they are less likely to get sick from contaminated water.
- Children that are healthier spend more time in school.
- Women no longer have to trek for miles to collect water, and which opens up education and job opportunities for them.
- Communities can develop agriculture and livestock livelihoods.
