Kashmir Water Well Project

Home   Kashmir Water Well Project

As part of IMRC’s Summer Volunteer Program, 2 young girls from NJ and Boston – Marwa Abdulhai (17) and Yusra Syed (15) – were able to visit the villages in Kashmir. Appalled at the living conditions of its people after a year of the devastating flood, Marwa and Yusra have undertaken a project to provide Kashmir with clean drinking water.

The destruction has impacted the lives of tens of thousands of families, including this young girl who has no idea of the negative consequences of the drinking dirty floodwater.

This water has also been tested to contain harmful chemicals.

Many families currently find themselves unable to have access to clean drinking water and thus use the same dirty flood water for cleaning, drinking, showering, and cooking. One young mother related to them that they drink water only when in dire need, thus suffering from dehydration and water-borne diseases.

Bring A Village Back to Life

The floods of December 2014 in Kashmir have even now left tens of thousands of families unable to have access to clean drinking water and are suffering from serious risks of dehydration and water borne diseases. But we can change that.

The Goal

IMRC’s goal is to raise money to build 100 tube-wells across Kashmir to provide clean water to it’s people. Each Tube-Well will be a minimum of 100 feet deep, only 2-3 km away from the other.

It only takes approximately $1250 to construct a well in the Kashmir area that can provide water anywhere from 500 people to 7000 people for generations to come.

Winter is approaching quickly in Kashmir, making it even more difficult to construct a water well in snowy conditions. We need your help to donate now so that the wells can be constructed at a quicker pace. The sooner we wait, the longer a child will continue to drink this dirty water.

Your help will be contributing to one of these most impoverished regions in Kashmir, if not more.

Donating $1250 to fund the construction of one tube-well will ensure you a personalized thank you message on a sign next to the tube-well with the name of anyone who you please as the official donor. Allah will shower your family with blessings for every drop of water that the children, women, elderly and others use for their needs.

We have already started the digging of the first Water Well funded by IMRC in order to test the water at various levels to ensure it’s purity conforming to international standards on portability.
