Water Programme

663 million people still use unimproved drinking water sources.

It’s easy to forget how vital water is to our lives. It’s also easy to forget that in some parts of the world, having access to tap water is a luxury. Al-Khair Foundation provides clean, running water to disadvantaged communities worldwide. We look for the most effective way to source water in any given location, and then we work to get the water to those in need. Whether this means building boreholes and installing hand-pumps, or even setting up water filtration plants that work on solar energy, we strive to provide the gift of water to the communities who need it the most. Many of our Water Aid programmes also involve awareness-raising sessions to educate a community about safe water and hygiene. Whether you want to buy a village a well, or invest in a deep borehole, by supporting our Water Aid projects, every donation will ensure more people have access to clean water.
