Water is an all-purpose element that is used for a variety of things, from cooking to cleaning. Not having a steady supply of water puts entire villages in a severely dire situation.
One of the biggest challenges that face areas suffering from poverty, famine or drought is the lack of access to clean water for drinking and sanitation purposes. With over 3.5 million people dying from water-related illnesses each year [WHO], unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health of communities in the developing world. Water is fundamental to life yet even today millions of people, particularly those living in third world countries, have little to no access to it.
Bismillah Aid has always been mindful of water sanitation, providing residents of affected areas with clean drinking water.
One of the quickest and easiest ways to provide drinking water is by digging a well or creating a water pump. It is also the most cost-efficient way, which makes water wells a very popular choice in third world countries. They provide water on a small scale, but larger wells and electric powered pumps provide drinking water for a greater amount of people.
One of the ways to provide residents with access to this water is by digging wells and installing water pumps. We undertake such projects whenever there is a serious need. Recently, our projects have been concentrated in Pakistan.

"Before the pump (Our larger water well with an automatic pump), I would have to spend 2 to 3 hours to retrieve water from the nearest village".
