On the authority of Sa‘d ibn ‘Ubadah (ra) who said, ‘I asked, “O Messenger of Allah! Which charity is best?” He [saw] replied, “Providing water”’. (Ibn Majah)
Access to safe drinking water can transform lives. The gift of a tube well will ensure that up to 4 families have access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking.
Tube wells are manually operated and can lift water from about 30 metres beneath the ground. They are designed to last at least 10 years and can be easily maintained by the beneficiary.
The wells are located in convenient locations, often between a cluster of houses.
Note: A well can take up to 6-9 months to complete as in some locations they can only be constructed during certain times of year.
