‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. [Abu Dawud]
The gift of a Dig-a-Well can provide around 35 families with access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking, as well as keeping livestock hydrated. On average, these wells serve up to 200 people.
Dig-a-Wells are ideal for families who rely on agriculture and farming. The wells draw water from up to 40 meters beneath the ground making them dependable during all seasons.
Your Dig-a-Well will be situated in a communal place such as village centre, school or mosque.
Note: A well can take up to 9-12 months to complete as in some locations they can only be constructed during certain times of year.
