Dear friends and family,
What would it be like
to carry 5 gallons of water for 5 kilometers every day and still not have
enough? Imagine carrying every drop of water you use.
Around the world,
women and children—mostly girls—spend up to 5 hours each day walking for water. Without clean water
nearby, they collect dirty water from rivers, streams and ponds and carry it home in
heavy pots on their heads or strapped to their backs. Every day, 5,000 children
die from preventable, water-related diseases.
I am writing to ask if
you would consider donating to this cause. The money I raise will fund clean water, toilet and
hygiene-education projects for Kenya, Sierra Leone, Uganda, South Sudan and Rwanda. Individual sites
are each open to the public and can serve large groups of people. These projects will give children the chance to
go to school, allow women the time to earn money and set communities on a path
out of extreme poverty.
Charity (Zakat) is one of the five pillars of Islam
Our team goal is to raise 1,000.00. A donation of $10,
$25, $50 or whatever your budget will allow, would be most appreciated. Just
$75 provides a child with clean water, a toilet and hygiene education FOR LIFE.

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When a man
dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah
(ceaseless charity); knowledge which is beneficial; or a virtuous
descendant who prays for him (the deceased).” [Sahih Muslim]
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
