Responsibility for water source of life

We shall not finally defeat AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, or any of the other infectious diseases that plague the developing world until we have also won the battle for safe drinking water, sanitation and basic health care.
Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary General

IWFA works in development aid. Clean water is the basis for a good health and better life. Through the dissemination of simple methods, the use of appropriate technologies in water supply, water treatment and sanitation, the population should be enabled to care for enough clean water and good hygiene.

Clean water and good hygiene help to prevent illnesses such as diarrhea, cholera and typhoid. Each year about 2.2 million people die of these preventable diseases.

On national and international seminars, we impart this knowledge. Further areas of activity i.e. are irrigation and hydrology.
