Deepwater wells provide their users with waters for years and years. In rural areas they are a lifeline for the inhabitants as they may be the only source of potable water.

When Ummah Welfare Trust installs a well, users are trained on how to maintain them and keep the water supply clean and free of pollutants.

Providing water in this way is a very good way of offering a Sadaqah Jariyah (continuous charity) as the donor can expect to reap Allah’s blessings for as long as the well supplies water.
