Build a deep water well
“When a person dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: ongoing charity (Sadaqah Jariyah), knowledge that is benefited from, and a righteous child who prays for him.” (Muslim)
£770 - Install a deep water well.
This Eid al-Adha, leave a legacy on this Earth. Install a deep water well in drought-hit Tharparkar, Pakistan, helping to transform and protect a village.
When you provide a deep-water well, you give the gift of clean water to around 70 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. You can even donate a water well on behalf of a loved one, and they’ll reap the endless rewards of this charity – even after they are gone.
And when you give during the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, your charity packs even more power.
“There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” (Bukhari)
Pakistan could run dry by 2025
Water is about much more than quenching thirst; it is what creates jobs and helps communities to lift themselves out of poverty.
Last year, Pakistan experienced the latest in a series of brutal, cyclical droughts. 21 million people don’t have access to clean water and experts predict that 2020 could be worse, and that the country could run out of water by 2025. A fifth of diseases in Pakistan are associated with poor sanitation and water quality. We’ll be installing your wells in areas of Pakistan that have been worst hit, where current water sources are unsafe, contaminated, or very far away.
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 we try to stem the spread of COVID-19.
Transform a community for generations to come
When you give £770, you’ll be directly responsible for transforming life for 70 people for many years to come. 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 .
Our work in Pakistan
