The drinking water supply is the main part of our work:

  • We build wells and maintain them in places where many people do not have enough clean drinking water.
    • A well costs about 2000-21.000 €
  • We build water pipes to provide the families who live far away with water.
    • the cost is about 200-250 €
  • We transport water with tankers to the farthest places where neither well can be drilled nor building water pipes is possible.
    • 20 tons of water (the content of a tanker) cost 100 €
    • That's enough for 100 people for 3 days
    • 60 liters for every family (4-7 people) per day.
  • In these projects as well, participation with one-time or smaller amounts is possible and welcome on a pro rata basis.

We offer social support for people without any perspective:

  • Helping people to depend on themselves.
  • We help people to (re) start self-employment or self-sufficiency through own work and to be independent from donations.
    • For some families, for example through selling vegetables or fish or tailoring etc.
    • And, for whole villages, for example through charitable fields

We distribute the Zakat (poor tax) and help in celebrating holidays:

  • The zakat is given to the needy and entitled and distributed first to orphans, widows and the old people and, of course, to others who deserve it.
  • Sacrificial animals or meat are distributed to orphans and other poor people.

We also have a special emergency program that can help people in extraordinary humanitarian and social emergencies.
