Water is a basic necessity that many of us. Unfortunately many people around the world are deprived of it. They are suffering from health issues fron do not have access to clean and safe drinking water. That’s where UMR comes into play.
The idea of Sadaqah Jariyah comes into play – a charitable act that not only benefits individuals in need but continues to provide ongoing rewards even after our lifetime.
One impactful way to contribute to this noble cause is by donating UMR’s water-well project. These wells serve as lifelines for communities facing water scarcity and can significantly improve their quality of life. By providing access to clean drinking water, we can help prevent diseases caused by contaminated sources and alleviate the burden on individuals who often have to travel long distances in search of this vital resource.
Consequence of Lack of Water
According to WHO and UNICEF (2021), an estimated 2.2 billion people worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water. In Chad and South Sudan, less than 1% of the population has access to safely managed drinking water.
People living in vulnerable regions are in misery due to lack of water. A major issue around the world is the lack of access to clean water, especially in underdeveloped countries.So here are some of the major consequences of lack of water.
One of the most significant consequences of this problem is the prevalence of waterborne diseases. Many diseases can result from consuming polluted water. It includes dysentery, typhoid, and cholera. Young children and elderly people are particularly vulnerable to these diseases. WHO estimates that each year 485,000 people die from diarrhea because of poor hygiene, sanitation, and access to clean water.
People struggle to get safe and nourishing meals if they don’t have access to clean water. They use contaminated water to irrigate crops or care for livestock. It increases the risk of disease and lowers the quality and availability of food. People experience malnutrition as a result. It can cause stunted growth, reduced immune systems, and other medical issues.
People need to travel great distances or spend a lot of money on bottled water because of the shortage of clean water. This can be a considerable financial burden, especially for families that are already having a hard time getting by.
