The Ali Asghar Water Appeal is an ongoing initiative by The World Federation to provide access to clean water and sanitation facilities in areas of deprivation. In many parts of the developing world, women and children walk for miles to fetch drinking water.

In January 2015, The World Federation launched an appeal to raise funds for building water well hand-pumps in Pakistani villages where families do not have access to clean water. Thanks to the wonderful support of donors from around the world, the campaign raised over £16,000 GBP / $24,000 USD in just one month!
With the funds raised, 63 water well hand-pumps will be built in District Mianwali, District Bhakkar and District DI Khan in Pakistan’s Punjab Province.
On behalf of The World Federation, we take this opportunity to thank all of our donors who either sponsored a well(s) in full or contributed generously to this appeal. Your support means so much to those who don’t have easy access to clean water. Now, we can go back to so many deserving families and give them the good news that they will soon have a water well hand-pump in the vicinity of their homes. Thank you for making this possible.
Construction of the wells will begin in February 2015 and The World Federation will publish a report in our weekly newswire upon completion of all wells. Additionally, individuals who have sponsored full wells will receive a personalized report of their sponsored well(s).

As of October 2015, over 705,000 refugees have fled to Europe on unseaworthy boats and dinghies across the Mediterranean Sea. More than 3,200 refugees have died or are missing. In response to this emergency, The World Federation and the Council of European Jamaats (CoEJ) partnered to provide humanitarian aid to the thousands of refugees arriving on the Greek island of Lesvos.
The 2010 monsoon floods in Pakistan called for an urgent need for help in a crisis situation. Thanks to the generous, quick and ongoing support of donors from around the globe, The World Federation has been active in providing urgent aid, as well as long term support to the affected men, women and children whose lives were uprooted in a matter of minutes. These families lost their homes, their livelihood and in some instances, their loves ones.
