Water is the essence of life. Providing water is a continual charity (sadaqah jariyyah) that keeps on giving for generations over and over again. Sadly, 1 in 10 people in this world do not have access to clean water. The lives of almost 1 billion people will change significantly with clean water. Imagine being responsible for fertilising fields, quenching the thirst of people, washing, feeding animals, plants etc.
We've partnered with local organisations on the ground to build sustainable water projects such as these water wells. So not only are you building wells and providing water to many people but you are also creating jobs and employment. The cost for the water wells includes boring the holes, well-head, piping, filters, water quality testing, platform, plaque, transportation, labor, and documentation.
A shallow water well typically supports up to 10 families and is up to 250 meters deep. A moderate water well typically supports up to 30 families and is dug to a depth of 550 meters. A deep tube water well supports up to 50 families and is dug to a depth of 1100 meters.
