BUILD A WELL
WATER IS The best CHARITY
Water is the essence of life, yet for many is considered a luxury. There are millions of people around the world living without water, toilets and hygiene. 771 million people don’t have clean water close to home. Providing water is a continual charity (sadaqah jariyyah) that keeps on giving for generations to come.
SHARED BY ALL
Sadly, 1 in 10 people lack access to clean water. The lives of millions of people will change significantly with clean water. Imagine being responsible for fertilising fields and providing basic hygiene facilities to communities in need.
We've partnered with local organisations to build sustainable water projects such as water wells. So not only are you building wells and providing water to many people but you are also creating jobs and employment.
SAFE DRINKING WATER
The cost for the water projects includes boring the holes at various depths, well-head, piping, filters, water quality testing, platform, plaque, transportation, labor, and documentation.
WATER WELL INFO
A shallow water well typically supports up to 10 families and is up to 250 meters deep. A medium water well typically supports up to 30 families and is dug to a depth of 550 meters. A deepwater well supports a whole community and is dug to a depth of 1100 meters.
Why Water Projects
Various water projects are completed to help families and communities around the world with basic human rights. Water is essential not only for drinking. Water is used for farming, cleaning, cooking, construction and personal hygiene.
What You Get
You get the prayers and thanks from disadvantaged families around the world for the water supply we’ve built in your name (or a name of your choosing). ‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. (Abu Dawud)
