Water & Sanitation
At Islamic Relief, we believe that Everyone Deserves Clean Water. Each day, almost 1,600 children under the age of 5 die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation and improper hygiene. Over half of these deaths are preventable through basic interventions including the provision of clean water, basic sanitation and hygiene education.
We have been working to provide clean water to communities all over Pakistan. Our initiatives include building water filtration systems in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP), gravity schemes in Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K), and lead hand pumps in Sindh. We have also provided water in schools and built inclusive sanitation interventions all over Sindh, AJ&K, KP and Balochistan.
