Solar Water Wells
For each well donation, Al Mustafa Welfare Trust works tirelessly around the World to provide people with access to clean water and sanitation. We assess the need for water on an individual basis, we tailor our solutions to specific problems.
In many parts of the world, normal water wells cannot be installed, as clean water is too far below the ground, sometimes as deep as 3000 ft. In these situations, normal wells will only collect dirty, contaminated water. When this happens, in places like Pakistan, Somalia, Kenya, Malawi, and Gambia, Al Mustafa Welfare Trust installs Solar Water Wells to help provide an environmentally friendly water resource for communities that utilises renewable energy, through sunlight.
Each solar water well supports between 400 and 600 people every single day. The electric motor runs for 2 hours, which allows plenty of time for water to be collected through the solar panels.
