Water and SanitationWater supply systems in Syria have been badly affected by the conflict. The lack of reliable, clean water supplies is particularly worrying in areas which have seen a high influx of displaced communities.
Our water engineers work to ensure that communities have access to sustainable, clean water and appropriate sanitation facilities for domestic and agricultural use. In the last eight years, we have rebuilt and repaired thousands of water systems and trained members of the local communities to undertake future repairs. 15.5 million Syrians currently require water and sanitation assistance, 6.2 million of whom are considered in acute need.
£10 can provide a family with clean water for a month.
Providing safe, drinking water helps some of the most desperate families in Syria to break free from poverty and illness giving them a better chance of transforming their lives. Drinking dirty water is one of the most common causes of death in the developing world despite being one of the most preventable. This is why it is so important that we ensure the availability of clean water in some Syria’s most deprived areas.
Through our water projects, we have secured access to clean water to over 1,000,000 civilians.
Displaced Syrians do not have access to regular clean water due to the destruction of infrastructure in the on-going conflict. It does not meet their basic needs; and is a cause of illness for many, due to the lack of basic water sanitation.

Clean Water for Every SyrianDrinking dirty water is one of the most common causes of death in the developing world despite being one of the most preventable. Ever since the conflict in Syria and the Middle East have escalated, water insecurity has also grown. According to UNDP, “70 percent of the Syrian population is without regular access to safe drinking water because of water cuts and destruction of basic infrastructure.”
Nine year old Sami would have to walk long distances each morning to collect water for his family. This journey meant he was only able to attend school in the afternoon causing him to miss out on his education. His part time school attendance meant that he was unable to keep up with the rest of the class and was consistently falling behind.
When we built a water pump in his camp, Sami no longer had to walk the long distance for water each day and was able to attend school on time with his classmates. Your donations are helping us build water systems across Syria, provide clean water and change the lives of children like Sami. This is why it is important that we ensure the availability of clean water in some of Syria’s most deprived areas. Ensuring access to safe drinking water and sanitation facilities requires us to invest in proper infrastructure and sanitation facilities, as well as spread awareness of water conservation, hygiene, and sustainable usage. Your donations will help provide clean drinking water to thousands of people daily.
According to the UN, water scarcity affects 40% of the world's population - an already dreadful figure which is likely to increase as supply is unable to meet increasing demand.
