Give Water, Save Lives

Water is life’s most vital resource, yet 800 million people around the world cannot access it safely: either it’s too far or it’s unsafe. Women and girls spend 20 million hours every single day collecting water and every minute another child dies from an illness passed on by dirty, contaminated water. War, famine, disaster, and extreme poverty all contribute to the global water crisis which prevents one out of every 10 people from having access to safe, clean drinking water.

We believe in clean water for all, that’s why we work with communities to create specific, sustainable solutions that work best for them. We assess the need for water on an individual basis, working around the world to provide communities with access to clean water and sanitation, tailoring our solutions to their specific problems.

Our work ranges from large-scale interventions targeting thousands, like solar-powered community wells, to small tube wells ensuring access to clean water for a few families. We rehabilitate water wells, install filtration systems, construct WASH facilities in schools and provide emergency water supplies to victims of disaster and conflict.

At Muslim Hands, we take a holistic approach to our water schemes, ensuring we deliver education and training to our beneficiaries to use their wells safely and to keep their water sources clean.

This Ramadan, give water and save lives. Your donations will transform communities and impact families for years to come.

 

The Best
Sadaqah

‘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.

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 builds tube wells, community wells and dig-a-wells in Mali, Niger, Sudan, and Pakistan and also rehabilitate existing water systems in Yemen. 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 [$390]: 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 [$1200]: 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 [$5000]: 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.

Each type of well has a different construction period, due to the size of the well and seasonal weather changes. Tube wells usually take between 6-9 months to build, while dig-a-wells and community wells can take up to 1 year.
