Water Wells

Everyone deserves access to clean water, but in areas of drought or rocky terrain a water well digging deep into the earth is the only solution


Building a water well for a community can save lives, keep families healthy and promote health among the most vulnerable. Water well charity is a special kind of water charity as it supports those areas where drought is common and water is extremely difficult to find. 

790 million people around the world are forced to drink dirty and contaminated water as they do not have access to clean and safe drinking water. Almost 1 million people a year are dying from water-related diseases and illnesses every year. With 842,000 people dying from diarrhoea alone each year, unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health of communities in the developing world.

When you give water well charity, you’ll be helping entire communities and you will give families direct access to clean and safe water every single day.

The Prophet (saw) said that ‘The best form of charity is to give someone water (to drink).’ (Ibn Majah)

 

A water well is a simple but robust mechanism that can extract water from a greater depth of over 100 feet from the ground. Due their capacity in the volume of water they can extract and their durability, they can support entire communities (consisting of many households) with access to clean water, every single day, any time of the day.

Currently we are supporting the installation of water wells in Pakistan and Bangladesh for £750. In Africa we can support the installation of a water well in communities in Kenya and Somalia for £3,000. In parts of Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kenya and Somalia, ongoing drought and a lack of rainfall has left millions of people continually thirsty. A lack of water also affects the food supply, as crops and vegetation is unable to grow, eventually leaving people with no food to eat.

Muslim Charity Intervention


With your water well charity, Muslim Charity has so far facilitated the installation of 979 water wells worldwide. Over the past year alone, Muslim Charity has supported the installation of an 82 water wells in impoverished communities. Currently our water wells are benefiting an estimated 235,780 beneficiaries and counting.

Upon the completion of a water well, we send the donor a personalised feedback report which includes pictures of their sponsored water well benefiting the local community as well as details regarding their water well and its location.

Building a water well is an excellent form of Sadaqah Jariyah.

 

Sadaqah Jariyah is a special kind of charity that benefits the recipients for an exceptionally long time. While others benefit from your charity, you too will receive rewards, meaning you will receive continuous rewards for a single donation.

In the Holy Qur’an, Sadaqah Jariyah is described as follows:

“The charity of those who expend their wealth in the Way of Allah may be likened to a grain of corn, which produces seven ears and each ear yields a hundred grains.” [2:261]

Providing water is an excellent form of Sadaqah Jariyah as it benefits communities for years to come, saves lives and helps build healthy future generations.

With the outbreak of Covid-19, clean water is needed more than ever.
