Water, sanitation & Hygiene
Life starts with water and clean water supports life.
Our WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) programs keep families healthy by giving them access to: safe drinking water, adequate sanitation facilities (washrooms, hand wash stations) and hygiene education for men, women, and children.
Water Tanks in Somalia
An estimated 2.9 million people are in dire need of water, sanitation, and hygiene products. IDRF is providing water tanks to meet the urgent needs in the most vulnerable regions of Somalia.
Water Wells for Yemen
Lack of access to safe clean drinking water has resulted in cholera and polio outbreaks. IDRF is building water wells in various vulnerable camps and areas around the country.
Hand Pumps in Tharparkar, Pakistan
The district of Tharparkar has experienced frequent droughts, leading to a large scarcity of water. We are providing handpumps, latrines and hygiene kits to the most water insecure region in Pakistan.
Safe Drinking Water for Children in Gaza
Over 97 percent of Gaza’s water is unsafe for drinking. And sources of clean potable water are as scarce as they come. We are distributing fresh drinking water to schools across Gaza.
Water Wells in Niger
Due to political climate, the need for water in Niger has risen, causing thousands of people to flee their homes, leaving them no access to clean water. IDRF will be building water wells and handpumps.
