Water is the basic necessity for life. One of the biggest dilemmas in third-world countries is that the majority of their populations are deprived of access to clean and affordable drinking water. After every ninety seconds, a child dies because of water-related diseases. Water is so much more than just a drink; it is essential to cook food, nourish the crops and livestock, and for keeping cooking pots clean to prevent diseases from spreading. A person can only survive - on average - three days without water, and if the water they have is dirty and contaminated, fatal diseases spread quickly and the effects are devastating. Ummah Charity International aims to give safe and clean water to people all over the world.
At Ummah Charity International we have done multiple projects which include: installing hand-pumps, distributing clean water amongst disaster-affected people, and making water wells in rural areas.
