Water and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH):

Water borne diseases are rampant in areas where there are limited reserves and improper hygiene conditions. Improving access to safe drinking water, and making the habitation and environment cleaner is of paramount interest to each and every human being. Through donations to WASH we are able to:

  • - Maintain water sanitation standards
  • - Install water purification systems
  • - Install safe household and public latrines

Water for Life:

WFL improves access to clean drinking water through installation of hand pumps, water filtration plants, construction of tube-wells, water wells, water storage tanks, and water supply schemes to meet basic and livelihood needs.

Recent Water Emergency Responses:

Hygiene Kits:

These kits were distributed in areas of natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes to combat the spread of water born diseases. Hygiene Kits include washing and bath soap, teeth cleaning sticks (miswak), towels, razors, combs, nail cutters, cotton rolls, aqua tablets, ORS and SODIS bottles (used to purify the water through sunlight).
