Imagine a world where water scarcity no longer haunts the lives of billions. UNICEF reports that nearly two-thirds of our planet’s population—over four billion people—face severe water scarcity for at least one agonizing month each year. Distressingly, by 2025, this crisis could engulf half of humanity. Our collective action is the lifeblood that can prevent the displacement of 700 million souls by 2030.
However, the significance of clean water extends far beyond quenching thirst. Adequate sanitation relies heavily on clean water for activities such as bathing, handwashing, and waste management. Clean water is indispensable in preventing the spread of waterborne diseases, reducing the transmission of harmful microorganisms, and maintaining proper hygiene practices. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) – Improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene can save 1.4 million lives per year.
For over a decade, the Ali Asghar Water Appeal has been a beacon of hope, striving to provide better access to water in water-scarce communities. This year, we are fueled by an even greater ambition—to build a future of sustainable water solutions. Our sights are set on transforming the lives of those in Gaza, Lebanon, Tanzania, Kenya, Mozambique, Pakistan, and India.

In the heart of Gaza, we embark on a flagship project that will send ripples of change through the region. Through our ground partners, we aim to deliver 200 water tanks to 200 families, as well as a water truck which will distribute water to over 200 families in Beit Lahia on a monthly basis. The truck will collect the water from WF-AID’s previously facilitated water desalination plant. This lifeline, combined with our existing sustainable efforts, will ensure the entire northern region of the Gaza Strip receives the elixir of life it so desperately deserves.
In the arid lands of South Lebanon, where hope can seem as distant as an oasis mirage, we aim to drill an artesian well. This sustainable water source will breathe new life into communities, quenching their thirst and nourishing their dreams.
In Tanzania, we stand united to confront the challenges of water scarcity head-on. By constructing five bore wells equipped with storage tanks, we plan to empower approximately 18,000 souls each day, bringing clean water to parched throats and extinguishing the flames of waterborne diseases.
Mozambique, a land teeming with resilience, calls for our attention. We pledge to repair damaged water wells in Nampula, revitalizing hope and ensuring that the life-giving streams flow once again for local families and communities.
Repair a water well in Mozambique today!
WF-AID is undertaking multiple water projects in Pakistan to address water scarcity and improve sanitation.
