Dirty Water Kills

Without water we cannot survive, it is a source of life and a blessing from the Almighty. In the Quran Allah SWT tells us: “By means of water, we give life to everything” (Surah Al-Anbiya 21:30)

The prophet Muhammad, PBOH, knew and understood the vital importance of water and preached conservation,
“Do not waste water even if you were at a running stream” (Ibn Majah) And the importance of ensuring that everyone, including the neediest among us, has access to water:
“The best form of charity is to give someone water (to drink)” (Ibn Majah) While many of us take it for granted, the sad reality is that there are currently 783 million people around the world who do not have access to clean water.

Dirty water is the biggest obstacle to health and progress in developing communities around the world. Roughly 5.7% of all illnesses or disabilities around the world are caused by unsafe water. Young children in developing nations are particularly vulnerable with 800 children under 5 dying every day due to water-borne diseases. In Niger, more than 10 million people don’t have access to clean water whilst, in Mali, 4,000 children under 5 die each year from diarrhea caused by poor sanitation and dirty water. Elsewhere, in Pakistan, continued drought threatens millions of people with severe water scarcity.
