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

Give Communities the Precious Gift of Life

785 million people around the world who don’t have clean water. That’s one in 10 people globally. And despite our tedious efforts, 2.2 billion people still lack safely managed drinking water worldwide. Without this basic need, disease and child mortality rates increase dramatically.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “The greatest form of charity is providing clean water to those in need.” Muslim Hands assesses the water needs of vulnerable communities, constructing different types of wells. 

Your support means women no longer spend hours fetching water from dangerous sources, children can go back to school, communities can stay free from diseases, and agricultural lands can flourish.

Our work doesn’t stop once we build wells. We train local families to maintain wells so countless people can receive this precious gift for years.

During this holy month of Ramadan, give the best form of Sadaqah Jariyah, the gift of clean water. Be their hope this Ramadan.

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

We build builds tube wells, community wells and dig-a-wells in Mali, Niger, 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.
