Mandate & Objectives
Water for life, one of ICNA Relief Canada’s largest Projects, aims to support clean water projects in poverty-stricken areas of the world, including India, Pakistan, and East Africa.
By the end of 2023, we hope to distribute over $1 million towards water projects around the world. Moreover, our goal is to increase awareness, and continue to invest in long-term initiatives to help make communities independent in regard to water consumption, irrigation, and feeding livestock.
Facts & Figures
As of 2020, ICNA Relief Canada has built over 1000 water wells in India, Pakistan, and East Africa since 2016, in addition to 4 community water projects established in parts of Somalia that have benefited over 1 million people and their livestock.
In 2019 alone, ICNA Relief Canada invested over $470,000 to clean water projects in Somalia, Pakistan, and India to provide over 1 million people with the necessary access to clean water and healthy sanitation facilities, facilities they would not have had access to without these life-changing projects.
With your generous support, we have begun constructing another community water project in Somalia, as well as 300 water wells in Pakistan and India. Through the development of shallow water wells, solar-powered water pumps, and water wells in these poverty-stricken areas, millions of people will have access to clean water right outside their homes.
