In any emergency, lives are put at risk by inadequate water supplies and poor sanitation. I’s aim is to help provide some water supplies, and essential sanitation facilities, even in the most difficult circumstances. In emergencies which unfold over a longer period of time, there is more time to develop solutions that are more cost-effective and appropriate to local conditions.

Insaf Malaysia health teams also work alongside water engineers to ensure water and sanitation facilities are used properly, and so prevent the spread of disease.
