One of over 600 water pumps you have donated was installed in Daabri Village, Tharparkar, Sindh.
The small village of Daabri had no clean water supply – they had to walk many miles to get filthy water which was affecting the health of both the children and the adults with constant life-threatening ailments including diarrhoea and other water-borne diseases – it was in desperate need of a water pump to provide clean drinking water.
With a single generous donation for the cost of one pump, we were able to install a Water Pump in Daabri providing clean drinking water to the villagers.
It is stated in Hadith that when a person passes away, his acts come to an end except for three things:
- recurring charity (providing a water pump is a type of sadaqah jariyah)
- knowledge (by which people) benefit, or
- a virtuous descendant who prays for them
To date, donors have provided hundreds of water pumps in their names or the names of their dearly departed and provided clean and safe drinking water to thousands of people in Pakistan.
A Daabri village elder describes what it means:
“After so many years of hardship, we now have our water pump. It has changed our lives, and we can see how healthy it is making our children. On the day of judgement, may Allah (SWT) quench the thirst of the people that gave us this pump.”
