ONE IN EVERY NINE people do not have access to clean water.
Islamic Relief water and sanitation projects–both at the emergency and long-term levels–have been providing essential aid for many years.
When we build a water system, we ensure communities have a sustainable source of clean water for years to come. We recognize the risk of drought, displacement, and disease and with over thirty years of expertise as a global IR family, we know that simply drilling wells and installing water pumps cannot solve the water crisis.
We bypass short-term interventions and high running costs to instead provide long-term sustainable solutions; installing irrigation systems, building water tanks, training communities, distributing hygiene kits and rehabilitating viable water systems.
