Water & Sanitation

At MGR, Water & Sanitation projects come first on our list of ways develop villages. Giving people a safe water source and sanitation facilities eradicates diseases that claim lives and cripple communities. Having access to water means people who spend hours fetching water each day, can spend that time working or in school. It means farmers can water their crops in dry season, so that harvests don’t fail.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Muslim Global Relief to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Muslim Global Relief we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Muslim Global Relief to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Muslim Global Relief will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Muslim Global Relief receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

How it Works

A single water well in Ghana or Gambia can provide safe water for up to 2,000 people, depending on the region. That’s an entire village, and often even neighbouring villages. In India and Pakistan, MGR installs hand pumps. Between 10 to 35 families can benefit from a single hand pump.

£450: In Pakistan, installing a hand pump can cost between £450 in the Sindh Province to £900 in Nowshera.

£1,500: The cost of a water well starts at £1,500 and varies depending on the region and accessibility of ground water. In Ghana, it costs £5,000 to build a water well, while in Gaza it costs £8,500.

What We Do

MGR runs Water and Sanitation projects in six countries across two continents. Once we complete a project, we run awareness raising sessions with villagers about hygiene and sanitation. Over the past three years, we’ve installed in excess of 700 hand pumps and over 40 water wells in remote villages.

We build latrines and showers
MGR installs covered sewage and waste management systems in underdeveloped villages where a dearth of pit latrines means locals often resort to open defecation. We then build public sanitation facilities with latrines, showers and ablution taps. Find Out More

The Water Crisis

Every minute, a child dies from diseases caused by contaminated drinking water. But the water crisis doesn’t just claim lives. It also causes poor health and perpetuates poverty.

Poor health means people of limited means are forced to spend money they haven’t enough of, on treatment and medicine. This is money that could otherwise be spent on food; school books; tools and materials that can generate income. Poor health also affects productivity, so that people who could be working to earn a living, are unable.

In Africa alone, over 332 million people have no safe water. To acquire it, they spend hours every day walking long distances. The time they spend searching for water is time that could be spent at school; at work or at home, caring for children.

We install hand pumps
MGR installs hand pumps in communities throughout Asia and Sub-Saharan African. They are efficient, effective and long lasting. One hand pump can provide safe water for up to 35 families, depending on the region. Find Out More

We build wells
Wells sometimes cost more but their impact is greater. They can provide water for whole villages, and even neighbouring villages, depending on the region. A well in India, for example, can provide safe water for up to 60 families. In Gambia, 2,000 people benefit from a single well we built in Mariama Kunda Village, Kombo North. Whereas in Ghana, 20,000 people continue to benefit from an MGR water well in Zog Villa, Bawku.

We operate water tankers
In remote areas of Gaza, MGR works with local partners to supply families with safe water via tanker trucks. We do this monthly, weekly or daily, replenishing household water tanks and even providing for local schools, hospitals and mosques.

We build water desalination plants
In sea-side areas where there is an abundance of water, but it isn’t clean or safe to drink, MGR builds desalination plants. This can be costly, but more efficient in the long run, particularly if those communities currently rely on water distribution.
