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 plan is to support the community of 65,000 people in Burtinle, Somalia with clean potable water by installing a solar powered water pump. The versatile pump is a financially and environmentally sustainable option with low maintenance while lasting at least 25 years. This project would create opportunities for more sustainable projects in the region. The sum expense for the pump is $25,000 USD – a reasonable cost to give the gift of nourishment.

Please help us raise the funds 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.
