From quenching thirst to transforming lives
In rural parts of countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan and India, women can spend up to five hours every day in search of water, which is often dirty and contaminated with diseases.Accompanied on this audacious journey are their daughters, who miss out on their education as a result. With the provision of water hand pumps, we help reduce a journey time from hours to minutes or even seconds, children can invest their time in getting an education and women are able to capitalise their extra time and energy on activities that boost their family’s income rather than just ensuring family survival. Improved sanitation also alleviates water related diseases.
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. 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.
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.
Quba Trust has always been mindful of water sanitation, providing residents of affected areas with clean drinking water. One of the ways to provide residents with access to this water is by digging wells and installing water plants. We undertake such projects whenever there is a serious need. Recently, our projects have been concentrated in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Tanzania.
Wells, Pumps & Plants
One of the quickest and easiest ways to provide drinking water is by digging a well or creating a hand-operated 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 solar powered wells provide drinking water for larger populations.
Donate to Quba Trust and see to it that some of the most barren regions in the world get access to clean drinking water. Everyone who donates can even have a plaque erected at the site, in honour of a loved one. Donors will also receive a report and photo as part of the feedback process.
Want feedback? On completion, the donor receives a letter / report with picture(s) of the well including your specified plaque with the name of your choice, up to a maximum 25 characters.
Please note: If you with to give us any further information, like the name / details you would like on a plaque, please add to the section “Notes/On behalf of” when completing your donation.
As a donor, your name will automatically be included unless you expressly state otherwise. If you are donating in memory of someone, please spell their names correctly. If no names are specified, only your name as the donor will appear on the plaque.
