Opening Individual Water Wells in Africa

   Water is life, abundance. A water well is a source of life, it means access to clean water. Each water well, which touches the heart with its coolness and refreshes the heart, turns into not one but a thousand smiles. As people smile, the hearts of philanthropists are filled with peace and happiness. In lands where hundreds of children lose their lives every day due to contaminated water, we struggle to be the water of life.

   Hadrat Sa'd b. 'Ubadah's mother had passed away, and he came to the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and said: "O Messenger of Allah, my mother has passed away. Can I give alms in her name?" he asked.
The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: "Yes." Then Sa'd (r.a.) asked, "Which charity is better and more valuable?" and the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, "To meet the water needs of people and animals." Upon this, Hadrat Sa'd built a fountain in Medina as a charity. This fountain served people for many years.

(see Nesai, Waya, 9; Ibn Majah, Edeb; Ibn Hanbal, Musnad, 5/284; 6/7)

The Prophet's (PBUH) answer taught us an important lesson. The lesson here is how important it is to be instrumental in meeting people's water needs.

Why are we drilling water wells?

   As Hulp Medet, we strive to respond to the water needs of people in lands where thirst is rampant. As an association working for the benefit of society, we set out with the slogan of "Being a Life for a Hope"...
We open water wells in Africa, Bangladesh and Pakistan so that one more family does not experience the pain of a child due to thirst or dirty water, and one more child does not become an orphan.

Why a water well?

   Water is a vital need for every living thing. In wetlands, soils are more suitable for agriculture. And animals that feed on plants are more productive. People living in lands where plants and animals are productive lead a prosperous life. In areas where there is insufficient water, drought occurs.
People in deprived areas, who are in trouble with thirst, are even more difficult with the malnutrition caused by drought. While some are tested with thirst, others have to struggle with various diseases caused by contaminated water.

   Although 70% of the Earth is covered with water, only 2.5% of the water on earth is fresh water, i.e. potable water. For this reason, although countries have sufficient water resources, potable water resources vary across continents, regions and countries.

   According to the report prepared by the United Nations (UN), the distribution of population density and clean water resources by continents is given in the table on the side. While the table shows continents living in abundance of water, it is noteworthy that there are also regions living in the face of death due to water scarcity.

According to a UN report, Oceania (Austria and the islands), which has 5% of the available water resources, is a water-poor continent. Despite this, Oceania is ahead of other continents in terms of the amount of water per capita due to its low population density.
Again, 60% of the world's population lives in Asia. Only 36% of the world's fresh water resources are located in Asia. According to various studies, Asia lags behind other continents in terms of the amount of water per capita, with the lowest average.


Why are we opening water wells in Africa?

   When we think of poverty or thirst, Africa comes to mind first. In fact, Africa is a continent rich in underground and above-ground resources. But the people of Africa cannot benefit from these riches due to economic, ethnic, political problems and climatic reasons.

While we can easily access water when we turn the tap, people struggling for life in Africa can only access dirty water by walking for hours every day. The dirty water they access causes diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, hepatitis, typhoid, river blindness, pneumonia and polio.

   Forced to live with diseases, the people of arid lands are losing their lives every day.

   According to the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD), 66% of people living in Africa face water problems in arid and semi-arid regions.
   We are opening water wells in Africa with the support of you, our volunteers and donors, to solve this problem in this deprived region.
