Walk for Water
Sadaqah Jariya

This Dhul Hijjah, I am taking part in a walk to help increase awareness of water scarcity all around the world and raise funds to provide sustainable sources of clean water in areas of water scarcity.

The walk will be approximately 5 km and will echo the walk performed by our beloved Lady Hajar between Safa and Marwa searching for water before being blessed with ZamZam.

All donations will go towards Islamic Relief Canada's Water for Life projects, to fund their projects located in over 30 countries across Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe. They work to ensure that not only do communities have a safe and reliable source of water for today, but for life too.

Thank you for your donation. Every little helps!

How your water donation changes lives 

When you donate water wells , not only does it act as a Sadaqah Jariyah but you also help communities facing water scarcity access clean and safe water. Your generous donations are helping us to reach over 200,000 people through over 100 water wells, hand pumps, and water infrastructure to provide clean water for life. 

As a hand pump charity , we support communities across the globe in a variety of ways, including:

  • Offering life-saving clean water to over 3,000 Sudanese students through the installation of 6 water tanks at 6 schools 

  • Installing 8 drip irrigation systems in Ethiopia to support agro pastoral farmers 

  • Ensuring that families can directly access clean water by drilling and installing hand pump water wells in their homes 

  • Creating water management committees and providing local community members with the training to manage their community’s water systems

Donate Water Wells

Water wells are drilled to source groundwater that is pumped to the surface. Installing wells helps increase access to clean drinking water, reduces overcrowding at water collection points and improves relations within communities.

In many countries, health and quality of life is increasingly threatened by the poor water quality and scarcity of water reserves. Without the infrastructure or resources, communities are not able to install wells on their own, and are forced to travel long distances for water.

This is where your donations come in! Our water wells are often installed directly in family homes, villages and schools to increase direct access to clean water. Each family receives a consultation from a technical expert to find the best location for the water well, so they can have direct access for their day-to-day usage and farming needs.

Build a Community Solar-Powered Well

Our solar powered borehole wells offer a long-term solution to water scarcity and provide water to thousands of people. The water is pumped from a depth of over 100m, using electricity generated from solar panels, making it a reliable clean, sustainable solution – even in the most remote areas. A solar powered borehole means an entire water system, piped to key areas with taps for easy supply.

In many countries, communities continue to suffer from acute water scarcity, with 60% of the population with little or not access to clean drinking water. Climate change has further exacerbated the water crisis by increasing severe water stress across various regions. This has caused chronic food insecurity and malnutrition in children.

This is where your support can make a difference! Our solar powered borehole wells can supply enough water for an entire community. They come with a water tank and an additional water distribution system for drinking and irrigation. This will not only reduce disease but also enhance food security within these local communities. Islamic Relief also makes sure to establish and train local water management committees to ensure sustainability for each community.

Water Charity: Sustainable sources of clean water

Here at Islamic Relief, we’re working worldwide in over 40 countries across the globe to ensure that not only do communities have a safe and reliable source of water for today, but for life too.

When we build a water system, we ensure communities have a sustainable source of clean water for years to come. We recognize the risk of drought, displacement and disease and with over thirty years of expertise we know that simply drilling wells and installing water pumps cannot solve the water crisis.

We bypass short-term interventions and high running costs to instead provide long-term sustainable solutions ; installing irrigation systems, building water tanks, training communities, distributing hygiene kits and rehabilitating viable water systems.

Help us to provide men, women and children clean and safe water, an essential we all take for granted.

Islamic Relief works with communities to strengthen their resilience to calamities, and we provide vital emergency aid when disasters occur.

We help the impoverished access basic services, including education, water and sanitation, as well as healthcare. We provide lasting routes out of poverty through our sustainable development schemes. Our integrated approach to progress is transforming communities worldwide.

We tackle the root causes of poverty and make sure that the world’s most vulnerable people have real influence in both our programs and advocacy.

Our key values, of compassion, justice, custodianship, sincerity and excellence – a critical part of our Islamic faith - inspire us each and every day to create positive change and remember the sanctity of life.

In line with Islamic teachings on the value of every human life, we provide assistance to whoever needs it most, regardless of race, religion or gender. We work to transform and save lives of people in crisis both Canada and across the world.

Let us share the khair from the blessings Allah has bestowed upon us.
