Welcome to the Quench Their Thirst Fundraising Project!

Water is a basic necessity of life, yet millions of people around the world lack access to this essential resource. By setting up a fundraising page, you can make a difference and help quench the thirst of those who need it most.

The money you raise will build water wells, boreholes and water filtration plants in rural communities in Africa and Asia, where people currently have no choice but to walk for miles to collect dirty, contaminated water. This not only puts their health at risk, but also takes up valuable time that could be spent on education, work, or caring for family members.

What is the Quench Their Thirst initiative?

This year, we have launched the Quench Their Thirst initiative to inspire you to give the best form of charity to those in need.

To get involved in this campaign, all you have to do is sign up, choose which type of water project you want to raise funds for and set up a page. Once you have set up your page, you can then share with family, friends and colleagues. When you share your page, you will be inspiring those around you to support your fundraising mission and share in the reward of every single donation that is made.

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘Whoever directs someone to do good will gain the same reward as the one who does good.’ (Muslim)

By raising funds to build water wells, you will be helping to provide a long-term, sustainable solution to the water crisis in these communities, which means families will have access to safe, clean water right on their doorstep. This will improve their health, increase their productivity, and help them build a brighter future for themselves and their children.

Each fundraiser will receive a feedback report, a great charity gift certificate and they will also be able to add their name or name of a loved one on the Water Well Plaque

Gift Water to Save 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.

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.
