Our Varied Approach to Water

With 842,000 people dying from diarrhoea alone each year, unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health 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.

In arid deserts, where rainfall is scarce, we construct wells that can extract water from up to 80 metres below the ground, in villages that rely on toxic water sources we install filtration systems and in crowded settlements we carry out sanitation projects.

As with all the areas we work in, we take a holistic approach to our water schemes. In many developing countries, knowledge about health and hygiene is lacking. Muslim Hands delivers education programmes, training people to use water safely and to keep their water sources clean.

We understand that the responsibility to provide clean water and sanitation does not end when construction does. When delivering our programmes we carry out water testing to make sure that water is safe to use and we support local people in maintaining projects.
