WATER
THE SOURCE OF LIFE

““In (providing water to) every living being there is reward.”

Hadith - Ibn Majah no. 3686

A WELL IS A GIFT THAT KEEPS GIVING

Lovely to see you here.

 

Fasting in Ramadan makes us thirsty.

 

Water is a human right, the most basic living need. Thousands of East African refugees struggle to access reliable sources of clean, safe water.

 

Drinking when they’re thirsty. Giving their baby a bath. Washing daily for prayer. Whatever it’s for, they need water.

 

Help us bring water to people who need it.

WATER IS LIFE

UN SDGs

Our water projects work towards United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6:

Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

Water is the most basic necessity, essential for life. In remote places, refugees walk miles to get it – or worse, have to settle for dirty, dangerous water which has a devastating impact on their lives.

KEY FACTS

                                        

Each year in the East and Southern Africa region, poor quality water, hygiene and sanitation are the main causes of death for more than 250,000 children under five.

    LIFE SAVING 
    SADAQAH

    Ethar Relief provides clean water to refugees and needy people in East Africa. We try and ensure that no-one is too far from water at any time. By modern construction standards, making a permanent well that taps into water reserves deep beneath the rocky ground isn’t hugely expensive – it’s just far beyond the means of the refugees themselves.

    Small wells can be placed in hard-to-reach areas or sparsely populated communities. This reduces the distance these communities need to travel for water and eases the difficulties for thousands of remote families.

    Families, unaccompanied children and women are exposed to many dangers as they are forced to travel significant distances to access water which is often dirty and contaminated. The presence of wells protects them and prevents their further displacement.

    WATER SAVES LIVES

    Wells, hand pumps, mobile water stations. Water doesn’t come out of taps in the refugee camps. Refugees walk miles to get it – or worse, have to settle for dirty, dangerous water.

     

    In East Sudan and the surrounding regions, the summer season starts in March and peaks in May. This year, Ramadan will fall in the hottest part of the year. We need to be ready to help keep people hydrated.
