Water is so much more than just a drink: it’s needed to cook food, water crops and livestock, wash hands and cooking pots to stop diseases spreading... Ummah Charity International aims to give people all over the world water for life.
Water is the basic necessity of life; it is life, since without it humanity would not exist. One of the biggest dilemmas in third world countries is that the majority of their populations are deprived access to clean and affordable drinking water.
Water is essential to life. Clean water is vital for drinking, growing food and keeping clean. A person can only survive on average three days without water, and if the water they have is dirty and contaminated, fatal diseases spread quickly and the effects are devastating.
Waterborne diseases are caused by pathogenic micro-organisms that most commonly are transmitted in contaminated water. Infection commonly results during bathing, washing, drinking, in the preparation of food, or the consumption of infected food.
