The Prophet (saw) was reported to have said:

"The person who strives on behalf of the widows and poor is like those who strive in the way of Allah and like those who fast in the day and pray in the night."

[Sahih]

We are working across South Asia with widows and orphans in desperate need of help. Our aim is simple – to keep families together. With your help we can build wells and give the gift of clean water that will ensure people can continue to grow and thrive together as families.

The wells will provide a family with clean, safe water for them to drink, wash, cook and even grow their own crop, providing a sustainable form of income.

Widows have been left to care for their families alone, facing no other choice but to put their children’s lives at risk. Dirty drinking water containing diseases and parasites is often the only option. Not only that, the time spent collecting water from miles away leaves them with little time to earn a living. You can build a well and give a lifeline for £25 per month or a one-off amount of £300

Once your well has been built, you will receive an in-depth feedback report with photos of the well in action and a message from the families you have saved.
