UPDATE: PROJECT COMPLETE. AL-HAMDULILAH. MUST WATCH VIDEO OF THE PROJECT.
SRF are giving you the opportunity to donate towards a Water Well that will be built in Chad, insha-Allah.
Below is what our contact in this region has reported back to us:
Chad is amongst the poorest countries in the world. 75% of the population live below the poverty line. Health and social problems are degenerating with shortage of food and chronic malnutrition levels. 95% of the population are illiterate. The climate varies especially droughts that have negative effects on the harvest.
The well will be constructed in the Central Sahel region of Chad, the poorest and most dry area of Chad with insufficient rainfall to cultivate crops without irrigation. The livelihood of the people in this region is extremely dangerous, they are very vulnerable and very socially disadvantaged. Many households are headed by women as a result of male mortality and immigration. Women remain marginalized and do all the farming, herding animals, house chores and still go long distances to fetch water and fire wood. The wells in the Sahel region will be the best sadakah one could ever give, the reward will be enormous. The population of the area is predominately Muslims with a few Christians.
The well that will be constructed will be a high density capacity well (not a hand pump well that will dry up after 6 – 9 months). The will be dug about 15 to 25 feet to find water and connected with tanks and pipes. It takes about 7-15 working days to construct if no obstacles are found on the way. Chad is a very dry land and parts of desert therefore the well will be dug using machines as people cannot dig to reach the depth where water can be found.
