Open a water well, eliminate thirst
— One in ten of the world population, that is almost 700 million people have no access to clean water.
— Water drank by almost 2 billion people fails to comply with hygiene regulations.
— Approximately 1000 children are dying every day due to diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea and typhoid caused by contaminated water.
— More than 2 million people die every year due to drought, diseases and difficulty in accessing clean water.
— Drought, poverty, rapid population increase and pollution are a major threat to clean, drinkable water sources. In this world where millions of people have no access to clean water, contagious diseases are on the increase. If no practicable measures are taken to prevent the decrease of clean water sources, the dangers people face at the present will increase even further. In many regions of the world, especially in African and Asian regions, the people have to walk miles to meet their daily water needs.

Until the present IHH has opened 11.400 water wells in 41 countries in an attempt of eliminating this problem. So far, these water wells that were built according to the conditions of each region have provided millions of people with access to clean water.
