Sa’d bin Ubadah (Radhiyallahu anhu) asked: Which form of charity is most virtuous? Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) replied: “Arranging water for masses to drink”.
One Humanity Foundation’s water and sanitation projects in Malawi aims to provide access to safe and clean water by constructing waterwells and boreholes in rural areas throughout Malawi. On average, a waterwell can benefit upto 100-200 families four times per day depending on the location.
The water is used by families for washing, cooking, drinking, irrigation and farming etc.
Cost of a Borehole: R65,000 (As of 10/2020)
Cost of a Waterwell: R12,000 (As of 10/2020)
One Humanity teams on the ground in Malawi ensure regular feedback of areas that are in dire need.
Once the project has been completed, a plaque with your details will be put up and images of the borehole after completion will be sent to you.
Providing water in this way is an excellent way of offering a Sadaqah Jariyah (continuous charity) as the donor can expect to reap rewards from Allah for as long as the water is being used.
One may donate and make Isaal-e-Thawaab for ones beloved.
Sa’d bin Ubadah (Radiyallaahu anhu) once asked Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam): Can I donate something on behalf of my late mother? Rasullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) replied: Yes! Sa’d bin Ubadah (Radiyallaahu anhu) asked: Which form of charity is most virtuous? Rasullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) replied: “Arranging water for masses to drink”.

Allah Ta’ala says:
Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allaah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve”
