Food and Water

Food & Water - Zakat Foundation of America | Zakat Calculator | Muslim Charity | Muslim Aid

Food and water are the basis of life. Zakat Foundation addresses the roots causes of poverty through long-term solutions that ensure permanent access to nutritious food and clean water. Zakat Foundation supports the autonomous organization of the rural and urban poor towards a dynamic and long lasting strengthening of communities from within.

1.5 billion people can not reach clean water in the world. Zakat Foundation's goal is to decrease these number by opening hundreds of wells. Alhamdulillah thousands of people can drink clean water by using the wells that were built from your generously paid sadaqa Jariyah.

"Whosoever digs a well will receive reward for that from Allah on the Day of Judgment when anyone amongs jinn, men and birds drink from it" Hadith Sherif (Bukhari and Muslim).

Please note: The cost of digging wells are variable depending on the country's economic and social condition, location, and terrain as well as the well's technical structure.

Zakat Foundation supports:

  • Digging water wells in areas that need clean water access
  • Community agricultural projects and small scale farming
  • Traditional knowledge dissemination, sustainability planning, and a focus on local economic vitality
