Our water wells
Building wells for the needy in Africa has been among the very first projects of our association. It is a continent that has the biggest need for water on Earth and the amount of wells that we have built since 2013 is already far over two thousand. With the mercy of Allah, thousands of people from a number of poorest African and Asian obtained access to clean, drinking water.
This trustworthy hadith of our Prophet (ﷺ) that says: “The best form of charity is giving someone water (to drink)” shows the great reward for such an act.
The donators to such charitable deeds are from different countries and maybe even of other faith. We receive donations from Europe, Russia and its surrounding countries. The money may be meant for an entire project or for a part of it.
If an individual order is placed, we may name the well after the sponsor, but if such a wish was not expressed, we name the well after a companion of the Prophet (ﷺ). The price of a well varies depending on the country. To fully understand the reasons for such variations, below you may find the necessary information.
You may donate to the well project of Salsabil in the manner that is the most comfortable for you. To do so, simply click on “donate” in the website menu in the top right corner, choose a “purpose of donation” and a “payment method” that will suit you best. We ask Allah the Almighty to accept your donations and our efforts.
Niger – 1250€
Niger is one of the biggest countries in Africa where Association Salsabil is actively working. People live in difficult, socially unacceptable conditions and the access to drinking water is also severely limited. We are building wells in Niger since 2014. Our wells in Niger are equipped with the best INDIA MARK-2 pumps currently available on the market. With its robust hot-dip galvanized surface mechanism, its cylinder and its rods entirely made of stainless steel 304 as well as its high-end UPVC pipes, you are sure to have a well that lasts!
Chad – 1700€
It is only in 2017 that we began building wells in Chad. Due to tremendous needs, we ask our sponsors to pay attention to this particular country.
Here, people cross dozens of kilometers in search for water. Unfortunately, their price is higher than in Niger because of the methods of construction and the great depth of the groundwater reservoirs.
From the moment we receive the full amount of your well donation, every well gets a unique ID-number. Then, as soon as the well construction has ended, we upload a report video on our YouTube channel. If you wish to watch one, you may refer to the bottom panel of our website, and search in « Find your well » by indicating your well number. Furthermore, within a year after the payment of your well, you can ask a report of your well (video, photo, written report). You can find an example of the written report on this link.
