Water for Life

Water for Life is one of our biggest initiatives, aiming to support clean water projects in developing and poverty-stricken areas of the world. Currently, ICNA Relief Canada is focusing on sustainable long term initiatives in areas of Somalia, Kenya, Pakistan, Kashmir, and India.

Last year, with the help of generous donors like you, we were able to disburse over $900,000 for clean water projects, Alhamdulillah. These funds helped build 3 community water projects along with 10 shallow water wells in Somalia, a solar powered water pump to serve a community of 13,000 in Somalia, 83 water wells in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan, and 55 water wells in India. In addition to these long-term initiatives, the money was also spent providing emergency food and water relief to Internationally Displaced Persons in Somalia, during Ramadan 2017.

This year, our Executive Director, Shaukat Hussain, visited our various water projects and community wells in Somalia. While there, he was also able to inaugurate additional water projects, including 3 deep wells ranging down to 700 feet. These 3 wells will provide clean drinking water to 164,000 people and their livestock! These projects will ensure that these communities have clean water for decades to come, insha Allah. For more information about these recent trips, please check out our Facebook page, or follow us on Twitter, and Instagram

Insha Allah, our goal this year is to distribute over $1 million for water projects around the world, increase awareness, and continue to invest in long-term initiatives to make communities independent in regards to water for drinking, irrigation, and feeding livestock.
