Water Wells

Afghans enjoying a well constructed through Kama Relief

Water is indeed essential for all life on, in, and above the Earth. A vital nutrient to the life of every cell in the human body. Water also represents purity in Islam, not only to take care of body hygiene but also to perform spiritual purification by means of wudu (daily ablutions). But all places have easy access to clean water. According to the USAID (Dec 2019), only 42% of Afghani people have access to safe drinking water and only 27% of the rural population have access to sanitation facilities resulting in diarrheal disease that claims the lives of thousands of children under the age of 5 each year. Kama Relief views this problem as a critical priority and is aggressively trying to tackle this problem. KRC has dug over 89 water wells over the past three years. These wells have been dug in the most needed localities, particularly the rural areas, where there is little access to clean water. Once the well is built, Kama Relief ensures that the well is maintained and running properly for years to come.
As part of our religion, we are encouraged to provide water especially to those in need of it. Sa’d ibn ‘Ubadah reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, my mother has died. Shall I give charity on her behalf?” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Yes.” I said, “Which charity is best?” The Prophet said, “A drink of water.” Source: Sunan al-Nasā’ī 3664. You can help build a water well for a small village of around 20 or more families (up to 200 people or more). Your donation will help complete a new well, along with a pump and dedicated land (donated by the community) for only $1,200. Imagine each drop of water that touches their thirsty lips, that drops from their face during wudu, will be written for you with Allah.
