Father, Imam, Farmer.
Qari Muhammad, from Pakistan, did not hesitate when WaterAid needed land to install a sewage treatment unit to bring good sanitation and hygiene to his local community.
Qari Muhammad said: "I realised the importance of this project and donated my land for it. I thought that it will be a great welfare work for the entire village, and everybody will benefit from it."
This generous deed helped bring clean water to the community, transforming lives for the better. A farmer himself, Qari Muhammad has benefitted from having access to clean water for crops.
When we work together, big change happens. This Ramadan, you can help transform lives by giving the gift of clean water.

We’re an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.
Since 1981, we’ve directly reached 28 million people with clean water; 28 million with decent toilets; and 26 million with good hygiene.
Only by tackling these three essentials in ways that last can people change their lives for good. With our supporters and partners, we will change millions of lives for the better.
How we work
We work closely with partners internationally and on the ground in some of the toughest places in the world, to help achieve widespread change. Millions of people have already taken control of their lives and built better futures.
We do more than install taps and toilets. To make lasting change happen on a massive scale, we convince governments to change laws; link policy makers with people on the ground; change attitudes and behaviours; pool knowledge and resources; and rally support from people and organisations around the world.
Why monthly donations have a bigger impact
Regular gifts by direct debit give us a predictable income so WaterAid can commit to reaching more people around the world. Plus, direct debits mean we pay less in processing fees than for credit card gifts.
Our fundraising promise to you
We’ll use your donations in the best way possible. In every £1 we spent, 74p went on delivering services and making change happen and 26p went on fundraising and governance*
