Help build a water well
A water well doesn’t just provide the best of charities, it’s a Sadaqah Jariyah that continues to give, and continues to bless the giver for as long as it’s in use. Be a mercy to an entire community, and reap the rewards of this blessed act, year after year.
A fountain of mercy and clean water
Women and children often walk for miles each day to collect water to drink, denying them the opportunity to go to school, to work and to thrive.
Billions of people around the world are suffering from poor access to water, sanitation and hygiene, putting lives at risk every single day. Contaminated water can cause the spread of deadly illnesses, claiming lives and placing financial burdens on families already living in severe poverty. Every year, 3.57 million people die from water related diseases. Most of these people (2.2 million) are children.
The Sadaqah Jariyah Foundation is providing clean water to some of the most impoverished communities worldwide, offering long-term solutions. We’re building wells and water systems and helping communities tackle poverty, thirst and hunger.

How you can help
Build a hand-pump and provide clean drinking water to a community in Pakistan, Bangladesh or Burma.
Build a bore-hole well and provide clean drinking water to a village for up to 5,000 beneficiaries in Uganda, Sierra Leone or Kenya.
Build a water desalination plant and provide clean drinking water for up to 10,000 beneficiaries in Gaza, Palestine.
Water is about much more than quenching thirst; it is what creates jobs and helps communities to lift themselves out of poverty. When families struggle for water, it doesn’t just mean that they don’t have clean water to drink; without water, families can’t grow food, feed their livestock, stay clean, or have produce to sell. Without your support, residents will always be stuck trying to overcome the water shortages, which is especially dangerous as they try to protect themselves from the spread of disease.
Please note: Any surplus of funds will be placed back into the general water fund to be used on other water related projects.
