In large parts of the world unpredictable weather patterns lead to severe drought. Drought has a domino effect – first, there is no water to drink and second, crops fail. With no food, families begin to starve and there is no surplus to sell for a small income.
Without an income, families cannot fulfil their most basic needs or buy essential equipment for other income-generating activities to lift themselves out of poverty.
Sustainable water projects
It is vital that we put in place sustainable water projects to help mitigate the effects of drought. Islamic Relief has been working to build farmer’s resilience and increase their ability to adapt to climate change to help eliminate #DryDays.
Our recent project in Somaliland rehabilitated existing water sources, erected water tanks and installed irrigation systems to enable farmers to continue to produce food during periods of drought.
Save lives today
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “The best charity is giving water to drink” and he was the most generous in giving charity. (as narrated in Ahmad)
Access to clean water is a human right and we are working hard to ensure that greater water equality is achieved across the world.
Your donations will save lives and regenerate whole communities for generations to come ensuring there are no more #DryDays – so please give generously.
