The Gift of Water

With over 3.4 million people dying from water-related illnesses each year [WHO], unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the health and prosperity of communities in the developing world.
Muslim Hands works globally to provide people with access to clean water and sanitation. The type of communities we work with vary greatly so our approach reflects this. Assessing the need for water on an individual basis, we tailor our solutions to specific problems.
With your support, we will build a Dig a Well in one of our many locations, that can serve up to 200 people, providing access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking, as well as keeping livestock hydrated. On average, these wells serve up to 35 families.
