Water poverty is something that is rampant in developing countries. The majority of diseases affecting these countries could be halved if clean water was available!
Diarrhoea kills more children every year than aids, malaria and measles combined. 1.8 million, children die each year as a result of diarrhoea. Clean water is a human right, a basic human need but still 1.1 billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to clean water.
Clean water is one of the best forms of Sadaqa Jariyah [a continuous act of charity].
A companion asked the Prophet of Allah, Allah’s prayer and peace be upon him, “What form of Sadaqa Jariyah, a continuous act of charity, is best?”
The Messenger of Allah, Allah's prayer and peace be upon replied,
“Providing water is the best." The companion dug a well.
Feed The Poor have water aid projects providing clean water to schools, mosques and households. The cost varies from country to country. For example a drinking water tank in Sind Pakistan can cost a £1000; a water spring well in Uganda which is dammed and filtered will cost £1300; a hand pump in Pakistan will cost £150, while a well in Kenya can cost about £3000.
Contact Feed The Poor today! You can pay the whole amount or pay monthly. When the required amount has been paid, Feed The Poor will commence work on the water project.
A plaque with all the details requested will be put up, and Feed The Poor will forward a report with pictures on completion.

Access to clean water remains a great challenge to most marginalised communities in both slum and rural areas. Feed The Poor, have dug bore holes for the Jebrock community in Western Kenya, Havoco community in Nyanza and installed water storage tanks in the Umoja and Spring Valley mosques.
The Jebrock and Havoco communities have for a long time depended on untreated rain and river water both for drinking and domestic use. The people who previously had challenges in accessing clean water and were vulnerable to waterborne diseases like cholera now have a reason to smile.
