Charity and alms are the best remedy for ailments


“Charity and alms are the best remedy for ailments and calamities.” Imam Hussain (AS)

Water is life. Most of us do not know their access to water without any bothering is causing acute shortage at some place. The importance of water conservation ‘to ensure access to water to millions around the globe’ when utilizing the most precious treasure from Allah Almighty. The consequences results in the serious starvation of billions of living beings whose first resort of each day is fetching water for survival.

Pakistan is one of those countries who are facing acute shortages of water especially safe drinking water. Thou the natural resources are found in enough quantity to serve the entire nation with safe water. The reason! No planning and education.

Hussaini Foundation has completed 75 water schemes in different parts of Pakistan with the support of overseas donors. HF has launched “HUSSAINI WELL”project in August’2011 and Launched APPEAL to raise funds to built deep bore hand water pump in Sindh region. Alhamdulillah we have received 15 deep bore hand water pump commitments. The target area is district Dadu and Thar in Sindh Province where many habitants are facing acute water. The targeted area is geologically formed where ground water level lies between 180 ft to 350 ft. The poor habitants cannot afford the cost of one deep hand pump from their own pocket. In these areas 1 Kg of oil cost 2.5 dollar, medical facilities are far to approach easily. Road links are barely available.

ü      $ 2500 brings 20 families safe drinking water at their door for life.

ü      $ 5000 brings entire village (20 households) drinking water and improved hygiene and sanitation.

 

Improving the associated subjects needs proper education and resources.

 

Our project focuses the issue and educating the population to exercise hygiene practices.

The ancient Romans had better water quality than half the people alive now

·                                 884 million people lack access to safe water supplies; approximately one in eight people. 

·                                 3.575 million people die each year from water-related disease. 

·                                 The water and sanitation crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.

·                                 People living in the remote often pay 5-10 times more per liter of water than wealthy people living in the same city. 

·                                 An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than a typical person in a developing country slum uses in a whole day. 

Sanitation

·                                 Only 62% of the world’s population has access to improved sanitation – defined as a sanitation facility that ensures hygienic separation of human excreta from human contact. 

·                                 Lack of sanitation is the world’s biggest cause of infection. 

·                                 2.5 billion people lack access to improved sanitation, including 1.2 billion people who have no facilities at all. 

·                                 Of the 60 million people added to the world’s towns and cities every year, most occupy impoverished slums and shanty-towns with no sanitation facilities.

Children

·                                 Diarrhea remains in the second leading cause of death among children under five globally. Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year – is due to diarrhea. It kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. 

·                                 Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. 

·                                 Diarrhea is more prevalent in the developing world due, in large part, to the lack of safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, as well as poorer overall health and nutritional status. 

·                                 Children in poor environments often carry 1,000 parasitic worms in their bodies at any time. 

·                                 In the developing world, 24,000 children under the age of five die every day from preventable causes like diarrhea contracted from unclean water. 

·                                 1.4 million children die as a result of diarrhea each year. 

Women

·                                 In just one day, more than 200 million hours of women’s time is consumed for the most basic of human needs — collecting water for domestic use.

·                                 This lost productivity is greater than the combined number of hours worked in a week by employees at Wal*Mart, United Parcel Service, McDonald’s, IBM, Target, and Kroger.

·                                 Millions of women and children spend several hours a day collecting water from distant, often polluted sources. 

·                                 A study by the International Water and Sanitation Centre (IRC) of community water and sanitation projects in 88 communities found that projects designed and run with the full participation of women are more sustainable and effective than those that do not. This supports an earlier World Bank study that found that women’s participation was strongly associated with water and sanitation project effectiveness.

Disease

·                                 At any given time, half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene. 

·                                 The majority of the illness in the world is caused by fecal matter.

·                                 Almost one-tenth of the global disease burden could be prevented by improving water supply, sanitation, hygiene and management of water resources. Such improvements reduce child mortality and improve health and nutritional status in a sustainable way. 

·                                 88% of cases of diarrhea worldwide are attributable to unsafe water, inadequate sanitation or insufficient hygiene. 

·                                 90% of all deaths caused by diarrheal diseases are children under 5 years of age, mostly in developing countries. 

·                                 It is estimated that improved sanitation facilities could reduce diarrhea-related deaths in young children by more than one-third. If hygiene promotion is added, such as teaching proper hand washing, deaths could be reduced by two thirds. It would also help accelerate economic and social development in countries where sanitation is a major cause of lost work and school days because of illness. 

Economics

·                                 Investment in safe drinking water and sanitation contributes to economic growth. For each $1 invested, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates returns of $3 – $34, depending on the region and technology.

·                                 Almost two in every three people who need safe drinking water survive on less than $2 a day and one in three on less than $1 a day.

·                                 Households, not public agencies, often make the largest investment in basic sanitation, with the ratio of household to government investment typically 10 to 1. 

·                                 Investment in drinking-water and sanitation would result in 272 million more school attendance days a year. The value of deaths averted, based on discounted future earnings, would amount to US$ 3.6 billion a year.

Environment

·                                 Less than 1% of the world’s fresh water (or about 0.007% of all water on earth) is readily accessible for direct human use. 

·                                 More than 80% of sewage in developing countries is discharged untreated, polluting rivers, lakes and coastal areas. 

·                                 The UN estimates that by 2025, forty-eight nations, with combined population of 2.8 billion, will face freshwater “stress” or “scarcity”. Agriculture is the largest consumer of freshwater by far: about 70% of all freshwater withdrawals go to irrigated agriculture. 

·                                 At home the average American uses between 100 and 175 gallons of water a day. That is less than 25 years ago, but it does not include the amount of water used to feed and clothe us.

·                                 Conserving water helps not only to preserve irreplaceable natural resources, but also to reduce the strain on urban wastewater management systems. Wastewater is costly to treat, and requires continuous investment to ensure that the water we return to our waterways is as clean as possible.

HUSSAINI HOUSING FOR FLOOD AFFECTEES PROGRESS


Hussaini Foundation alongside its one room housing project has initiated custom built design houses for the flood affectees. One of such colony is being built in Kot Addu, Punjab with the sponsor of Al-Hujjat Foundation (Overseas entity) for 80 affected families. The accommodation consists of two room + one veranda + washroom + kitchen with chimney. Overall covered area is 400 sq.ft. One block contains 4 homes attached. This beautifully designed colony also has an Islamic Centre and provision for school and BHU. The habitants post flood living environment was unhealthy and unorganized. Their accommodation conditions were very poor and un-planned. This situation was not giving the habitants self respect and community bound relationship. As of today they have become neighbors and caring community because now they have strong feeling for organizing all their lifestyle and livelihood. When soon they will be shifted to their new homes new lifeline feelings will emerge from the dust of flood. Ameen
