The World Federation runs Ali Asghar Water Appeal (AAWA) every Muharram. Since this appeal launched over 10 years ago, WF have been working to provide clean and safe water to communities who have to live without. This year, we are raising funds for a number of sustainable water solutions in Yemen, Pakistan, Kenya and Bangladesh. These will ensure that families have consistent access to clean and safe water near their homes, so they don’t need to travel long distances to bring it back for their families.
Water connects every aspect of life. Access to safe water and sanitation can quickly turn problems into potential – unlocking education, work opportunities and improved health for women, children and families across the world.
The water solutions include water storage tanks, water supply pipelines and solar powered water wells, amongst others. You can read more about these projects here.
