“1 in 3 peopledo not have access to clean drinking water globally.”
In rural areas of countries like Yemen and Pakistan, when families don’t have close proximity to clean water, the women and children spend their days walking to find and bring water home — instead of pursuing their education or working.
From building mega water wells in Yemen to hand pumps in India, there are many ways you can ensure that communities around the world have more clean water to drink for years to come.
Through MAUSA’s water well program, you can be a part of the change. After you donate a well, we will update you every step of the way. Please see our video below to learn a bit more about the process.
The water well takes around 6-9 months to complete, however, delays may occur due to political unrest or weather related conditions. You may check on the status of your well by logging into your account. When your water well is complete, you will be able to see photos of your project.

Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
Today, only 10% of Gazans have access to safe drinking water
The war in Palestine has caused massive destruction, adding to Gaza’s ongoing challenges with infrastructure and electricity. Recent damage from the conflict has resulted in a decrease in clean water and sewage treatment services, as well as power shortages ranging from 18-20 hours a day.
Today, only 10% of Gazans have access to safe drinking water. Along with a dire need for clean and filtered water, there is also a shortage of medication and medical equipment. Muslim Aid USA is working on the ground to provide safe and sustainable water and sanitation to communities in Gaza in greatest need. Our team is also delivering medical supplies and equipment to Al Amal Hospital.
Our aim with this project is to reduce the risk of flooding
Our aim with this project is to reduce the risk of flooding and contamination in the Al-Nasr and Al-Satar neighborhoods in Gaza, by improving community-level water infrastructure. MAUSA will be installing wastewater UPV pipelines, further increasing access to hygiene and sanitation, while also creating temporary employment opportunities for locals.
