• Ramadan 2024 is coming soon, and this represents a time of sacrifice and charity towards others.
  • This is the time of year when we all come together to give what we can, in order to provide people with basic needs like food and clean water.
  • In this spirit, learn how you can make an impact this Ramadan by supporting Embrace Relief’s clean water well programs in Africa.

The month of Ramadan is a time of reflection, prayer, and charity, and holds profound significance for billions of people in nearly every country around the world. With Ramadan 2024 set to commence after sundown on Sunday, March 10, now is the perfect time to embrace the spirit of compassion and generosity. There are all sorts of ways we, as individuals, can make a meaningful impact in the lives of those in need. One way you can embody the essence of charity during this blessed time is to give clean water to the people of Africa through Embrace Relief!

Access to clean water is a basic human need, yet more than 300 million people in sub-Saharan Africa live constantly with water scarcity. In countless villages and towns, people have lived for years with their only sources of drinking water coming from unprotected rivers, lakes, ponds, or simple holes in the ground filled with rainwater. This water often contains human, animal and industrial waste, and poses immense challenges to the lives and livelihoods of all.

Drinking unprotected water puts millions of people at risk for harmful waterborne diseases like cholera, dysentery, and diarrhea. These diseases especially affect children; waterborne diseases are the fourth-leading cause of death in children under 5 worldwide. When water is not plentiful, farmers are unable to grow enough food to sustain their communities and sell to others, increasing hunger and depressing the local economy. Women and girls must spend hours each day walking to these imperfect sources of water, gathering water and carrying it back to sustain their families. This often results in physical injuries, and the time-consuming responsibility leads to higher rates of girls dropping out of school, and prevents women from taking care of their families or entering the workforce.

The solution to these issues is clear: there are vast amounts of clean water in sub-Saharan Africa. However, it is mostly found below ground, and must be access by pipes drilled into the ground. This is too expensive of a project for most small, rural communities in developing countries like Chad, Cameroon, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. But with the help of organizations like Embrace Relief, generous donors like you can help us transform lives this Ramadan, by ensuring access to safe and sustainable water!

Empower Lives This Ramadan: Donate to Build Water Wells in Africa

Leave a Legacy of Hope this Ramadan

Since 2013, Embrace Relief has embarked on an ambitious program of building new water wells and reconstructing abandoned wells in Africa. To date, we have built or reconstructed more than 850 wells, providing clean water to nearly 1 million people! In every community where we’ve worked, we have seen the joy and the immense progress brought on by each new water well. People live longer, healthier lives. Children are more likely to finish their education. Villages begin to develop and grow on their own thanks to the prosperity and abundance brought by their well. A water well doesn’t just provide this crucial basic need: it empowers a community to thrive.

This Ramadan, seize the opportunity to embody the spirit of giving by contributing to Embrace Relief’s Clean Water Initiative. The principles of Ramadan – empathy, solidarity, and selflessness – resonate profoundly with this program. Each donation, no matter its size, creates a ripple effect of positive change, purifying your wealth while uplifting those less fortunate.

Imagine the impact of your generosity — a single newly-built well costs just $3,500, and a reconstructed Fountain of Hope costs $1,300. Each Embrace Relief well serves approximately 1,000 people every single day, for years to come. Your gift gives sustainable life to an entire community, and when added to the gifts of those who have donated before, we are creating a long-term legacy of hope and transformation.
