ACCESS TO SAFE WATER IS A HUMAN RIGHT AND IS ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTH
In rural parts of low-income countries, most water sources are untreated, meaning that water is not safe to drink directly from the source. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.
‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “Providing water”’.

Water is vital to our lives. We often forget that in some parts of the world, having easy access to clean water is a luxury. FRDP International provides clean drinking water to needy communities in Asia and Africa. We not only provide water solutions but also conduct awareness-raising sessions to educate a community about safe water and hygiene.
The gift of a tube well will ensure that a family have access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking.
Tube wells designed to last at least 10 years and can be easily maintained by the beneficiary.
Once your Hand Pump is installed, you will receive a completion report of your hand pump with location and pictures. The whole process from start to finish can take up to 6 to 8 weeks. You can also choose a name for the plaque on the handpump.
Donate £120 and provide life-sustaining water every day for over 30 people and their livestock.
Deep Water Well
Install a deep water well in Sindh and drought-hit Tharparkar, Pakistan, where sweltering temperatures mean surviving the day is difficult and protect a whole village. These wells are constructed in communal places to benefit the whole village and community.
Water is about much more than quenching thirst; it helps communities to lift themselves out of poverty.
For most of us, access to water is as simple as turning on a tap. In drought-affected Tharparkar, in Pakistan’s Sindh province, accessing clean safe drinking water is one of the biggest challenges faced by communities. Many villages in Thar lack basic facilities, including access to water. In rural Tharparkar, there is little over 250 mm of annual rainfall and limited irrigation. That means that people in this area are restricted to groundwater in order to meet their needs.
The task of collecting water falls mainly to women and children in these communities. Usually women and children would spend three to five hours a day fetching water from wells from human and livestock needs.
Transform a community for generations to come
When you donate £450, you’ll be transforming life for a whole village in Tharparparkar for many years to come. Or £800 to transform a village in Uganda. Every time a resident is able to drink clean water, grow a plant, feed an animal, or work instead of spending their day fetching water, which will be your blessed legacy.
Donate £450 for Pakistan or £800 for Uganda and help FRDP International bore a deep well and install a pump. One well can provide life-sustaining water every day for over 70 people and their livestock. Your gift will save lives for years to come.
On completion of a Deep Well you will receive a feedback report within 12 weeks with pictures of the well including your specified plaque.
Water is not only necessary for an estimated 1.5 million people in Tharparkar, but it is also essential for an estimated 5 million livestock.
Solar Powered Water Well
Thar is one of the remotest and poorest areas of Pakistan in Sindh that is often hit by drought and scarcity of water is the main threat to the life of humans as well as animals. The region suffers from poor rainfall low levels of groundwater, and lack of electricity, making drinking water a distant dream for the villagers.
For communities in Tharparkar, gathering water for the day means hard work. On average, three members from a household – usually women – spend three to five hours a day fetching water from wells at least three kilometres away from their villages. People need a camel or a pair of donkeys to pull a bucket of water from wells, which are about 250 to 300 feet deep; otherwise, no one alone can pull a bucket by hand from such deep wells.
Conditions for solar energy are good in this region, which makes solar pumps are a practical solution, especially for the remote villages and homes that are far from a power grid. Besides offering access to needed water, these pumps will save time and energy for those who are gathering the water. That means children will be able to attend school, women can use their time more productively.
In addition to running the pump to bring up the water, the solar panels generate electricity, which is routed to local schools, mosques and communal places.
Powered by the sun, the solar-powered water well can provide a lifetime of water for 1,000 villagers and their livestock for a one-time cost of £10,000 per well from generous donors like you.
Together we can provide safe drinking water by using alternative energy to improve health, hygiene and the overall well-being of the people of Tharparkar.
