In Ramadan, whilst we refrain from food and water during the day, we avoid dehydration by replenishing our fluid at night. This is a luxury that many poor families don’t have and as a result, struggle from the symptoms of dehydration.
Water is a blessing that is often taken for granted, which the human body cannot survive without. A lack of clean, safe drinking water can lead to many problems with the human body and its functions. Unclean water can cause such symptoms as dizziness, stomach ulcers and even death.

Donate a water well to a poor community and benefit from the rewards of Ramadan and from the long-term reward of Sadaqah Jariyah, whereby you give today and gain the reward for many years every time a poor person drinks the water, serves the water, performs worship after using the water for ablution. Just imagine the rewards you can gain.
