The Cause: Provide Water for Life

Water is the key to all life. Yet across the globe, a staggering 785 million people are going thirsty each and every day. Without safe and clean water to drink, these people risk dehydration, disease and at worse: death.

“The best charity is giving water to drink and He was the most generous in giving charity.” [Ahmad]

Here at Islamic Relief, we’re working worldwide in over 40 countries across the globe to ensure that not only do communities have a safe and reliable source of water for today, but for life too.

By signing up to this challenge, the funds you raise will help provide clean and safe water to families in desperate need. Sign up now and help save lives.
