Build a deep water well
“The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
In drought-hit areas of Bangladesh and Pakistan, women and children spend hours fetching water. Help us to transform and protect an entire village by installing a deep water well to provide clean water and blessings for years to come.
£800 - Install a deep water well, changing the future of an entire community.
A fountain of blessing and clean water
When you provide a deep-water well, you give the gift of clean water to around 105 people affected by drought, ensuring they no longer go thirsty and can grow and water crops to feed their families.
A water well doesn’t just provide the best of charities, it’s a Sadaqah Jariyah that continues to give, and continues to bless the giver for as long as it’s in use. Change the future of an entire community, and reap the rewards of this blessed act, year after year.
Running out of water and time
Water is about much more than quenching thirst; it is what creates jobs and helps communities to lift themselves out of poverty.
When families struggle for water, it doesn’t just mean that they don’t have clean water to drink; without water, families can’t grow food, feed their livestock, stay clean, or have produce to sell. Without your support, residents will always be stuck trying to overcome the water shortages, which is especially dangerous as they try to protect themselves from COVID-19.
After years of cyclical drought, 21 million people in Pakistan don’t have access to clean water and experts predict the country could run out of water by 2025. A fifth of diseases in Pakistan are associated with poor sanitation and water quality.
In Bangladesh, 60% of people have to endure unsafe drinking water, and the contamination of groundwater is widespread. Our wells and established in coordination with water experts who ensure that the well produces clean water, which we test to ensure it stays safe for people to drink.
We’ll be installing wells in areas of Pakistan and Bangladesh that have been worst hit, where current water sources are unsafe, contaminated, or very far away.
Transform a community for generations to come
When you give £800, you’ll be directly responsible for transforming life for 105 people for many years to come. You’ll reap the blessings, and every time a resident is able to drink clean water, grow a plant, feed an animal, or work instead of spending their day fetching water, that will be your blessed legacy.
When you donate a well, we’ll install a plaque in your name on the well, and send you a report detailing when and where your well was installed.
You can even donate the well in the name of a loved one, and they’ll reap the endless rewards of this charity – even after they are gone.
Human Appeal has been working in Pakistan and Bangladesh for 30 years. In 2020 alone, we installed a total of 504 deep water wells, and so far this year, we’ve raised funds to install a further 405 wells.
Help us to change lives for the better, providing communities with a way to break the cycle. Give, transform lives, and reap the blessings.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our deep water well projects could take up to 12 months to be completed.
