The United Nations estimates that more than one in six people worldwide do not have access to the basic amount (20 – 50 litres) of safe freshwater for their daily needs such as drinking, bathing and cooking. Today, there are more than 2.5 billion people who are living without basic sanitation. Diseases such as diarrhoea are rife and lack of access to sanitation and clean water result in millions of deaths each year. The Al-Imdaad Foundation runs various water and sanitation projects. These include digging of water wells, borehole construction, building of toilets, education and hygiene training.
