In India, senior citizens are abandoned by their children because they can no longer afford to care for them. The World Federation supports these men and women with the aim of bringing dignity and peace of mind to our elderly.
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.

On 8 November 2013, when category 5 Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, hit the Philippines, it caused extensive damage to housing, livelihoods and infrastructure across nine of the country’s poorest provinces.
According to the United Nations, Kenya’s population is one of the most struggling populations in the world. With over 36 million people living there, water scarcity has been an issue for decades where natural water resources fail to provide an equitable delivery of water to the various regions of the country.
