Frequently Asked Questions
How deep will these wells be?
IDRF in partnership with local communities is looking to address these ongoing issues by building 90 ft. deep manual hand water pumps that will provide clean drinking water to approximately 15 households. This means each water pump can support up to 60-75 people.
How advanced are these wells? What will the maintenance be like?
With this project, we will be employing the expertise of our Pakistan partners, that are professionals trained in engineering, hydrogeology, and construction to build these water wells. Once the wells are built, our field team does period checks to ensure the wells are running smoothly.
What is the expected time of completion?
You can expect a final report regarding the completion of your water well 12 months from the day funds are released to IDRF. This report will include photos of your well in action, along with other significant details.
Are these wells Zakat eligible?
No. Water wells cannot be deemed zakat eligible due to the fact that these wells are used by a community of people, and we cannot provide “ownership” to one individual.
