Help us open more Water Wells
This video was the executive director opening the first well. Fast forward 4 years and we have hit our 900th well, Alhumdulillah!
Pious Projects of America addresses the root causes of poverty through long-term solutions that ensure permanent access to clean water and supports the autonomous organization of the rural and urban poor towards a dynamic and long-lasting strengthening of communities from within.
The wells are located in Africa in the country of Mali. $2,500 will cover the cost of all the materials and labor for opening up one well, a 10 year warranty, grand opening video, well plaque, and merchant transaction fees. Additionally, a portion will go towards educating and promoting this cause in order to raise more awareness and appeal to more donors.
1.5 billion people in the world cannot reach clean water. Our goal as muslims is to bring an end to this and supply as many people with water as we can, InshAllah. Giving the gift of water is great sadaqa jariyah!
“Whosoever digs a well will receive reward for that from Allah on the Day of Judgment when anyone amongst jinn, men and birds drink from it” Hadith Sherif (Bukhari and Muslim).
Please note: The cost of digging wells is variable depending on the country’s economic and social condition, location, and terrain, as well as the well’s technical structure.
