Palestine is living its gravest humanitarian crisis since the eight-day war of 2012. Since 7 July 2014, the violence and aggression escalating in the Gaza Strip has claimed the lives of so many innocent civilians and has injured and displaced scores of others.
Muharram 1437 Ali Asghar Water Appeal: 31 water wells, 1 toilet block and 2 water projects under construction thanks to donors
Last Muharram, The World Federation launched the MUHARRAM 1437 ALI ASGHAR WATER APPEAL to build 40 water wells in 40 days in the deprived areas of Kenya and Syria. Thanks to the support of donors from across the world, the appeal raised enough funds to build the following water projects in both Kenya and Syria:
• 24 water wells
• 5 water wells with kitchen gardens and trees planted around the well
• 1 public toilet block
• 1 water tank replacement
• 1 water harvesting plant
• 2 community water wells in Damascus
The water projects are under construction and already 5 wells in Kenya have been completed. Because the wells in Syria are much larger, they will take about one year to complete. The World Federation takes this opportunity to thank every donor whose generosity is bringing clean water to families in need.

In December 2013, the N2K Team, a group of youth from London (UK) walked from the Holy City of Najaf to the land of Karbala during Arbaeen 1435 to raise funds for The World Federation’s ‘Community Upliftment Project in Northeast Kenya’.
As the world focuses on the plight of the Syrian people and other refugees fleeing to safer lands in search of a better life, we cannot forget those who are fighting a different kind of battle where the lack of clean water is silently destroying lives in Kenya’s drought affected regions.
