WAKAF COMMUNITY WATER WELLS
Drinking dirty, diseased water is one of the most common causes of death in the developing world - and one of the most preventable – so with your water donation, you could be saving countless lives for years to come.
When you build a well in a community which has never had access to clean water before, you will literally save lives. But not only that – when you build a well, you provide a pathway out of poverty. Reliable access to safe, clean water means that drinking, cooking, washing, watering crops and animals and making wudhu no longer pose a risk of illness.
It also means that women and children don’t have to walk for miles to collect – often dirty – water. The average distance that women and children walk to collect water in Africa and Asia is 3.7 miles, carrying around 20 litres of water.
Now – just think of what your water well charity can do.
Your water well charity, which you give by donating a well, can help people stay healthy, grow their own food, have time for children to go to school or for women to start their own businesses. Clean water charity is so important to us as Muslims. The Prophet Muhammad (saw) once said;
“The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
A simple well allows those less fortunate a chance to break free from poverty and transform their lives for years to come.
Our Mission : To bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Water changes everything.
What We Plan To Do & Where :
Most of the rural folks in Cambodia have no access to clean water. They have to walk for miles to get clean water to drink, wash, cook or to take wudhu for prayers.
We aim to build 50 Community Water Wells (like above) all over the country. Each well comes equipped with 6 taps, a generous washing area, a water tank and an electrical pump to draw the water. Each community water well can be shared with 5 families - which means almost 30-40 people will benefit from each community water wells.
When a community gets water, women and girls get their lives back. They start businesses, improve their homes and take charge of their own futures. Your charity will change lives in a poor country and give sadaqah in return.
In one day, women around the world spend 200 million hours collecting water. By providing a community access to clean water, you are freeing up valuable time that they can use to work, go to school, get an education.
Each Community Water Well Cost = $950
You can help support our cause by donating $50/$100 (partial group donations)
