In more flat fertile areas, such as parts of South and East Asia, hand pumps are ideal for villages and households. Surface sources are common, so only a basic pump suffices for poor families trying to meet their water requirements.
‘He who digs a water source, then for every living creature that drinks from it – be it jinn, man or a bird – Allah Most high will reward him on the day of Resurrection.’
– A feedback report, in the form of a document, is provided for the construction of every hand pump.
– The construction of a hand pump takes up to 6 months.
– Plaque names of up to 30 characters are allowed on the pump, however ayahs from the Qur’an, Allah’s Names/Attributes or Hadiths are not allowed. The charity does not want these holy words to be desecrated.
– If no name for a water well is given in the ‘notes’ of the donation, Ummah Welfare Trust will keep the plaque ‘anonymous.’
