Somalia Water Well Appeal
Water is a source of life, yet over 1/6th of the world’s population lack access to safe drinking water. Every minute a child dies of a water-related disease. In many developing countries, millions of women spend several hours a day collecting water from distant, often polluted sources. Building wells in areas of drought will help save lives and allow the people to grow as a community. It also allows for the opportunity to gain continuous blessing through Sadaqa Jaariyah for yourself or a loved one. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Whoever digs a well will receive a reward from Allaah on the Day of Judgement when anyone from amongst the jinn, men and birds drink from it” (Bukhari and Muslim)
The construction of our current appeal is for a deep well in Balli-Matan Somalia. We still need to raise $61,000 so we can start the construction. The total cost is expected to be $216, 650 USD this includes hiring, equipment, materials, digging labor costs and transportation. Alhamdu’illah HCI along with our partner Humanitarian Excellence Association (HEA), have raised $155,000 for this project.
Please help us raise the money still needed. Water is a basic need that everyone should have the right to, help us make that a reality one well at a time.
All donations are collected in Canadian Dollars.
