Water Is Life

The people in the Horn of Africa are facing the worst water crisis seen in the region in many years. The drought has made the availability of water one of the most valuable resources that very few have access to. Millions of families have to walk hours and sometimes even days in order to get just a few cups of drinking water.

Providing water to those in need is a sadaqah jariyah (a continuous charity) and helps to fulfill a basic human right with a profound impact.

Amoud Foundation started digging wells after the historic drought of 2011 which caused the death of about 258,000 people.

 

Help Amoud Foundation dig water wells and provide clean water. One new water well can sustain the population of an entire village.

In addition, having a local water supply enables young girls to spend their time in school rather than walking several miles to collect water for their families.

The foundation of all life is water and even in today’s “modern” world, there are so many people who spend so much of their time searching for it. There are over 785 million people who live without clean water with the majority in Africa.

“….and We created from water every living thing.”

 

(Qur’an 21:30)

Many factors have contributed to the lack of water in the Horn of Africa. Among them are climate change, droughts, global warming, and other natural disasters. The extent of the lack of clean water in this region is both enormous and unacceptable. The need to provide clean water in the Horn of Africa is dire. Many lives are lost due to the lack of water in this region. In order to collect even the smallest amounts of water, women and children must walk lengthy and perilous distances for hours each day. Access to clean water is a basic human right.

Think about all of the ways clean water is needed and used and how much the health, growth, and stability of communities is dependent upon it. Without access to clean water, communities must endure incomprehensible hardships and the cycle of poverty will continue. Clean water is not only used for drinking but also for growing food and feeding livestock which adds to the health and success of a community. With less time spent on trying to collect clean water, children will have more time to spend on education and therefore able to have careers to contribute to the welfare of their communities. Women will have more time to work, start a business, better their homes and their lives.

As our beloved Prophet (S.A.W.) has taught us that

“Providing water is the best charity”.

Amoud Foundation Has Lead The Way In Bringing Access To Clean, Drinkable Water To Millions Of Impacted Families Over The Years. Eight Out Of 10 People Do Not Have Access To Clean Water In The Horn Of Africa, Leaving Many To Have To Walk Over 100 Miles To Get Access To Clean Water.

The foundation of all life is water and even in today’s “modern” world, there are so many people who spend so much of their time searching for it.

There are over 785 million people who live without clean water with the majority in Africa.
