Build A Water Well

Saves Lives By Donating Clean Water.

Around the world, approximately 785 million people lack access to clean water, with one in four individuals, including women, and children, enduring long journeys in harsh conditions daily to obtain this vital resource. Sadly, the water they obtain is often contaminated, leading to illness and even death.

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “The greatest form of charity is providing clean water to those in need.”  

Muslim Hands works around the globe to ensure people have access to clean water. Our approach varies depending on the communities we serve, as we assess the unique needs of each area and tailor our solutions accordingly.

Whether it's constructing water wells in areas of dire need or training local families to maintain them, your support ensures that our Gift of Water continues to impact countless lives for years to come. By relieving communities of the burden of water collection, we enable them to focus on education, livelihoods, and securing a brighter future.

During the blessed month of Ramadan Give the gift of hope, & the best form of Sadaqah Jariyah. Be their hope this Ramadan.

How It Works

Once you donate, your water well is designated to the relevant partner offices

The well is either assigned to the country of your choice, or if you’ve selected ‘where most needed’, the location is determined by our experts in the field.

Our teams build your water well in the community with greatest need

After establishing relationships with communities and carrying out needs assessments, our officers on the ground determine exactly where to build the wells

You receive a feedback report to show the impact of your donation

Once your well is constructed, expect to receive a comprehensive report with images and more information about the community you have helped


'The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, "Which charity is best?" He replied, “[Providing] water"'.

[Abu Dawud]

The Best

‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. [Abu Dawud]

We use water for everything, from washing dishes to cooking food to growing crops. Allah says in the Qur’an, ‘By means of water, we give life to everything. (Qur’an, 21:30)

Having access to safe water is a basic human right and fulfilling this right is an excellent Sadaqah Jariyah.


Safe Water Fund

Not all of us are able to build wells for entire communities – but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the rewards! The reward is based on the sincerity of our intention, and even giving a single glass of water carries immense rewards if it’s all you can give.

Donate to our Water Fund, and your donation can go towards building wells or other water projects, ultimately benefiting thousands of people. Every donation matters, because it all adds up!

In Their Name

On the authority of Sa‘d bin ’Ubadah that he said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Umm (mother of) Sa‘d has died, so which charity is best?’ He (saw) replied, ‘[Providing] water’. He (ra) said, ‘So [Sa’d] dug a well and said, “This (well) is for Umm Sa‘d”’. [Abu Dawud]

Ramadan is a time when we often remember those who are no longer with us, why not build a well in their name and honour their legacy during this blessed month.


We build tube wells, community wells and dig-a-wells in Mali, Niger, Sri Lanka, Senegal, Gambia and Pakistan. You can choose which location you would like your well to be built in. If you are unsure, select the “Where Most Needed” option and let our team of experts pick a location for you, based on current needs.

We facilitate 3 types of wells: Tube Wells, Dig-A-Wells, and Community Wells. 

Tube Wells [$310]: These wells are installed at the household level, serving 2-3 families. They are manually operated and can lift water from 30m below ground. 

Dig-A-Wells [$950]: These wells are installed in a communal area serving about 200 people, or 35 families. They draw water from 40m below ground and are ideal for small communities that rely on agriculture and farming. 

Community Wells [$4000]: These are our largest wells, serving a community of roughly 1,000 people. The wells are 1.5 meters wide and draw water from around 10 metres or more beneath the ground and are ideal for proving clean drinking water, farming, agriculture and livestock. 

We work with a wide range of expert partners who are on the ground in each location. These partners help to carry out periodic assessments, taking a detailed profile of each community and determining their needs. They work with the community leaders to work out what types of wells and how many need to be constructed in each area.
