Every day, about 1,400 children under the age of five die of illnesses linked to unclean water and poor sanitation. That’s more than half a million a year – or about one a minute.
Poor water and sanitation result in economic losses estimated at AU$268 billion annually in developing countries, or 1.5% of their GDP.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Through MAA International, you can build Sadaqah Jaariyah Water and Hygiene Solution in the form of either a
a Shallow Water Well and Latrine
Water2Home Solution (approx. 7 home/35 beneficiaries) and a Latrine
MAA's new Water2Home solution provides clean water directly from the ground to the beneficiary's home without the need for a hand-pump or bucket. The well is dug further into the ground and provides water for many years.
MAA will choose the most needed area for your donation and provide you with a full completion report detailing the location, number of beneficiaries, and plaque the names of your choosing attached to the well or piping solution.
