Raising Money to Build a Water Well

Recommended Posts

Salaam Alaikum, 

Weʼre raising £710 to Build a water well in either Afghanistan, Gambia, Kashmir, Mali, Niger, Pakistan, Senegal or Sri Lanka.

Sadaqatul jariyah is ongoing charity (continuous rewards) received by us (for good actions and deeds), that will not only benefit us in this life, but will continue to benefit us after our death. InshaAllah. 

Access to clean water can transform the lives of entire communities. 

The gift of a Dig-a-Well can provide access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking, as well as keeping livestock hydrated.

The wells draw water from up to 40 metres beneath the ground making them dependable during all seasons.

Your Dig-a-Well will be situated in a communal place such as a village centre, school or mosque.

The gift of a Dig-a-Well can serve up to 200 people each day.

Your reward lays with Allah swt

Are local people trained in maintenance of the wells and pumps? What is the life expectancy and the actual lifespan of some completed projects? Who or what company does the actual work of well building? 

I'm interested in this project but can't contribute without more information. Does your organization have a website besides the crowdfunding page?

I was going to do it through the zahra trust but it's £1500 with them i thought £700 would be more realistic. InshaAllah if you can help me in promoting this how can i get people to help? Thank you

Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, 'Six things benefit a person after he passes away: a child who seeks forgiveness for him, a copy of the Qur'an which he leaves behind, a plant that he planted, water that he donated in charity, a well that he had dug, and a tradition that others take from him and [practise] after him.' [al-Faqih, v. ۱, p. ۱۸۵, no. ۵۵۵]
