‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. [Abu Dawud]
The Best Charity is Giving Water
At Global Helping Hands, our water projects are designed to quench the thirst of the poor and vulnerable communities by supporting them with access to clean and accessible water. With your handpump donation, we strive to promote health and safety with fresh water.
790 million people lack access to clean drinking water. Millions are forced to drink dirty, unsafe water that could kill them. Women and children are forced to walk miles each day on dangerous terrain to fetch clean water. This denies children access to education, and hugely affects the entire family. A 2016 study by UNICEF estimates that 200 million hours a day are spent by women and girls around the world just collecting water.
Water Changes Lives
Every day communities across the globe are in need safe sources of water for drinking, washing, cooking, rearing livestock and watering crops. Yet for these millions of people, this simple essential is out of reach.
Every day, women and girls around the world spend a collective 200 million hours collecting water. Your donations are tackling this staggering inequality.
At Global Helping Hands, we’re working worldwide in over 10 countries across the globe to ensure that not only do communities have a clean and safe source of water for today, but for life too.
