Water Wells

DSC02219Electricity-supplied pumps are absent across much of Pakistan. Hand pumps or wells are ideal therefore for poor rural families trying to meet their water needs.

‘Water is the best Sadaqah.’

(Sunan Abi Dawud)

Ummah Welfare Trust has installed thousands of water wells across Pakistan, Afghanistan and Kashmir in recent years, alhamdulillah

Each well, bored approximately 150m deep, is installed with a steel pump supported with concrete. The wells are designed for robust usage, and can last for many years, alhamdulillah.

With Ummah Welfare Trust, you can install a well for just 110,000 PKR.

Clean water helps a community prosper. Safe water improves families’ general health; the cultivation of farmers’ lands; and children’s attendance at schools. So provide a well today, and improve the quality of life for our needy brothers and sisters.


On average it will take approximately 4 to 6 months to construct the well from the time of donation and includes the survey. A detailed report will be provided on completion of well for those donors who have contributed the full amount.


Plaque names of up to 30 characters are allowed including spaces on the well, however ayahs from the Qur’an, Allah’s Names/Attributes or Hadiths are not allowed. The charity does not want these holy words to be desecrated.
