Bring Thirst Relief To Those In Need

Choose an amount to give

Thirst Relief

With your Thirst Relief donations, you’ll be providing entire communities not only with the simple gift of clean water, but you’ll be providing them with the pathway out of poverty. Dependable access to safe, clean water means that drinking, cooking, washing, watering crops, hydrating animals and making wudu no longer come with the threat of disease.

It also allows women and children fetching water to do so with ease, instead of having to travel for miles, carrying heavy buckets of water. This saves them time and effort, giving them the chance to go to school, work or spend time looking after their families.

Deep Well

Build a well and provide clean water access to an entire community.

Have your name, or the name of a loved one, inscribed on a plaque, next to the well. Not only can you help end the water crisis, but building a well is an excellent way to honour the memory of a loved one.

Dirty water kills 1.5 million people a year and helps save those lives by providing communities with access to clean, safe water through our Thirst Relief program.

How Thirst Relief Donations Make A Difference

Give Water,
Give Life

Reliable access to clean water could save thousands of lives each day. With proper sanitation and easy access to fresh, clean water, communities can flourish and people everywhere can stay happy and healthy.

Our Thirst Relief appeal provides clean water to communities in Asia, Africa and the Middle East by building deep wells, setting Solar Panel Water and Power Centres, and providing sustainable water and hygiene solutions.

You can build a well that will sustain an entire community for $1680 – that’s only $4.60 a day!

Sustainable Water Solutions

Our Solar Water and Power Centres are a sustainable answer to the water crisis in many of the countries we help.

We’re using sustainable, green technologies to bring clean water to people in need. Our Solar Water and Power Centres supply water to the homes of up to 1,500 people and 1,000 livestock, as well as supplying electricity and power to schools and mosques!

Our Solar Water and Power Centres supply people with a reliable source of water right within their communities, so they no longer have to travel great distances to collect water or rely on questionable water sources for drinking and washing. Equipped with large water tankers, capable of holding mass quantities of water, these wells assure that freshwater is readily available for everyone throughout the community. People can easily pump water from the tank through a solar pump, eliminating any difficulty from the process of gathering water.

A Solar Water and Power Centre costs $35,000 to build but donate $240 a month and we will team you up with other generous donors so you can transform communities together!
