Our Varied Approach to Water

With only one in three people having access to safe water, it 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.

Our work ranges from large scale interventions targeting thousands to small tube wells ensuring access to clean water for a few families. We build and rehabilitate wells, install filtration and desalination systems, construct WASH facilities in schools and provide emergency water supplies to victims of disaster and conflict.

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.

Water Filtration Plant from £7000

With over 3.4 million people dying from water-related illnesses each year [WHO], unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health of communities in the developing world.

In Pakistan, despite big improvements in the provision of safe water and sanitation, an estimated 70% of households still drink contaminated water.

Ultra-filtration technology is used for the removal of particulates and macromolecules from raw water, to produce potable (drinkable) water.

The clean water which is produced will assist in reducing waterborne diseases amongst the children, women and men in that location.

You can build a plant in Paksitan, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka.
