Water Project

Nearly one billion people have no access to safe drinking water, One of every five deaths of children under the age of 5 is due to a water related disease. Close to 80% of illness in developing nations is believed to be connected to poor water and sanitation issues.

Building water wells and hand pumps are a significant initial step to our community development approach in empowering people to live their best life. By providing fresh water we can improve the conditions within that community.

By donating in water projects it also makes an excellent form of sadaqa jaariya for loved ones (including those who have passed away), as both you and the recipient continue reaping rewards as long as the project is bringing benefit to people, animals and crops.

Sa’d ibn Ubadah reported: “He said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, the mother of Sa’d has died, so what is the best charity I may give on her behalf?’ The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, ‘Water.’ Sa’d dug a well and he said, ‘This is for the mother of Sa’d.’ [Abu Dawud]

The cost of a water pump currently is £150
