Sponsor a Water Well

Water is life. A living being cannot survive without water. We in the first world countries probably don’t give water the same importance as millions of people around the world especially in Pakistan, Kashmir & Africa. We enjoy clean drinking water at the turn of a tap and watch it drain away without a thought. However, there are millions of people around the world who are still drinking contaminated water.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islamic Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islamic Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islamic Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islamic Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islamic Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Key Facts About The Water Crisis In Pakistan

Here are some key facts about the water crisis in Pakistan

  • Pollution – The increase in the industrialisation of many developing countries has come at a cost. Whilst the biggest gainers from this boom are humans but at the same time, the biggest losers are humans as well. The question is why? Most of this industrial growth is sudden, therefore the planning to deal with its negative effects hasn’t been taken into account especially the effects on the environment. The industrialisation has contaminated and in many cases completely destroyed the natural water reserves. In the countries where already there wasn’t enough water, this has to increase the misery of people even more. Every day hundreds of people are losing their lives due to drinking dirty water.
  • Population Increase – Pakistan has over 220 million people and it is the sixth-largest country in the world. This has had an impact on the supply of water and has, therefore, increased water demand. It has been forecast that by 2025, Pakistan’s water demand could reach 274 million acre-feet and the supply of water could remain at just over 190 million acre-feet.
  • Change in Climate – Changes in the climate can also have a significant impact on water supply in Pakistan, as the country is relatively dependant on rain for its water supply. This change in climate could cause the water in the soil to evaporate faster, which could increase the demand for water.

Nearly 50% Of Deaths Is The Result Of Drinking Contaminated Water

Did you know that over 85% of people in Pakistan don’t have access to clean drinking water? What we usually take for granted is something that is becoming more and more scarce and unsafe in Pakistan. This current situation has led people to rely on contaminated water, that is unsafe to drink.

Furthermore, nearly half the deaths in Pakistan is a result of drinking unsafe water. In 24 major cities across Pakistan, just over 80% of people do not have access to clean drinking water.

Over 70% Of Tharparkar Population Has No Access To Safe Drinking Water 

The district of Tharparkar has a major water crisis right now. This has led people to drink rainwater due to lack of access to clean water. But this has contributed to many diseases and illnesses. Furthermore, the water ends up becoming toxic and as a result, is not safe to drink. According to the National Nutritional survey of 2011 more than 500 children lost their lives as a result of malnutrition.

Barely 5% of the population of Tharparkar has access to safe, clean water (DUHS Study)

With your help, we can change the situation as a collective effort and use our resources to help people drink water that is safe to drink, and at the same time help save lives.

Contribute Towards A Good Cause, So Allah Is Pleased With You

It is stated in the Hadith that “the best form of charity is by giving water“. So please help those that are less fortunate and contribute towards a good cause.

Build A Water Well In Pakistan And Make A Difference

Over the past decade here at Islamic Welfare Trust, we’ve been building water wells for poor and needy communities around the world. Our water wells provide safe water to drink, wash, clean, to grow crops and hydrate animals.

Our aim is to make peoples’ lives healthier and give children an opportunity to grow and have a better chance to go to school or work and ultimately taking themselves and their families out of poverty for good. Let’s make a difference by making a collective effort to tackle this crisis and focus on protecting our children for the future.

Give The Gift Of Water For People Of Pakistan

If you would like to sponsor the building of a water well or digging of a water pump in Pakistan then Islamic Welfare Trust should be your choice. With Allah’s help, we’ve built over 40 waters wells and over 1,000 water pumps in various areas of Pakistan.

Most of our water wells have been built in the most deprived areas of Thar and Balochistan. These people are living in extreme poverty and do not have resources to build projects like these. With your support, we can provide a lifeline to these communities.

Water wells could potentially bring whole families and communities out of poverty. This is a Sadaqah Jariyah opportunity. You should take advantage of this and build a water well on your name or your loved ones’ names.

Our Work

Sponsor a Water Well in Africa

Africa is the poorest continent in the world. Millions of people are living in extreme poverty. These people don’t have access to even basic necessities of life. Islamic Welfare Trust is working across many African countries. We are supporting these communities with education, food, and water. Sponsor a water well/pump for Africa and help us save lives by providing communities clean drinking water.

Climate Change is Affecting Water Supplies

Many parts of the world are severely under stress due to the shortage of drinking water. Because of pollution and over-abstraction, the whole ecosystem is slowly falling apart. Rivers and canals which once were the signs of life now are running dry. According to scientists, the combined effects of climate change and an increase in population are likely to put increasing pressure on our natural water resources. If we do not act now then billions of people will end up without access to clean drinking water.

Feedback About Your Well

Once we’ve received the full payment along with your preferred country where you want to build the water well. We will identify the best place where once built maximum people can benefit from it.
