You Can Do Something To Help
we are committed to helping people who cannot help themselves
Water shortages and poor sanitation are responsible for 3.5 million deaths globally each year. Millions of people do not have access to clean drinking water, something we take for granted. From building a well, to giving someone a fresh water tank, you can do something to help. The most basic necessity is dismally absent from the lives of so many.
At GRF, we are committed to helping people who cannot help themselves. We work around the world, helping the most needy and vulnerable, who would otherwise not have the care and resources they require to survive.
Global Rahmah Foundation have been implementing safe water projects since 2013. Our aim is to permanently eradicate water poverty by continuing our life saving work and exploring new countries.
India and Pakistan
Water scarcity is one of the most pressing issues in Pakistan and India today, with almost 60% of the population in both countries lacking a viable supply of clean water.
It is estimated that around 200,000 people die each year in India due to the consumption of polluted water.
In pursuit of safe water, thousands of people in Pakistan and India make perilous journeys by foot, walking for miles on end, just to get a safe drink.
Global Rahmah Foundation have been supplying rural villages in India and Pakistan with water pumps to provide a steady source of clean drinking water for thousands of people.
For just £150 you can ensure those facing tough tribulations living in desolation in poverty-stricken villages, have access to clean water, reducing their daily struggles and pain staking measures to obtain water.
Gaza is suffering through an ongoing water crisis. Most of the available water is unsuitable for human consumption. It has been reported that in a few years, Gaza will be left without any safe drinking water altogether. GRF works on the ground to provide families with water tanks, which we refill on a weekly basis with fresh drinking water. We also provide schools, mosques and medical centres with clean drinking water, but there is still a massive shortage.
The destruction of Yemen’s water and sanitation infrastructure has created one of the worst health epidemics the country has ever experienced. It is estimated that approximately 19.3 million Yemeni’s do not have access to clean drinking water and sanitation. Out of desperation, many families resort to drinking harmful water that is not fit for consumption. This has led to a widespread Cholera outbreak, with children being the worst affected. GRF is working on the ground in Yemen to provide safe drinking water to families and communities. We provide water tanks to families and to the public, which are refilled every month with safe water to drink. There are many communities still living without any supply of water. These tanks will provide a lifeline to many people having to take desperate measures to survive.
Forced to flee their homes, 800 000 Rohingya refugees living in the densely populated camps in Cox’s Bazar, face many day to day difficulties trying to survive. The lack of safe water and suitable sanitation has caused a mass water crisis with the number of water borne diseases rocketing, putting an additional strain on an exhausted healthcare system.
Our teams on the ground implement safe water projects all year round to help curb the disease levels and ensure everyone has access to their humanitarian right of clean water.
