One in ten person in the world does not have access to water.
Drought, poverty, rapid growth of population, and pollution threaten clean water resources. Epidemic are on the rise in our planet where millions of people do not have access to clean water. If we fail to take affirmative and sustainable action against diminishing water resources the risks threatening human lives are going to grow bigger.
IHH has so far opened 7.782 wells in 36 countries.
We are working to help people, who have problems having access to clean.
Opening wells in the areas of need comes at the top of our relief operations to this end.
Commissioning to open a water-well costs 4.500 USD.
Specialized water wells are constructed in areas where a simple well will not do as the local population’s need for water is higher. These wells often are built featuring a storeroom, equipment, other gadgets, carrier engines and similar mechanicals. They meet the demands for water for an orphanage bathroom, or fountain of a mosque, or watering an agricultural land and other needs. They are built to make sure the water demand in the area is met at once and altogether. The specialized water wells’ cost varies according to the local situation. However they are among the most needed projects.
A donor can commission a water well of regular standards for the fixed price of 4.500 USD.
Apart from standard ones, we give quotes for wells especially specialized wells depending on the project. IHH carries out construction and maintenance of donated wells in Chad, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Sudan, Tanzania, Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Burkina Faso. However IHH identifies the countries to open wells based on the needs and demands of the local communities. Therefore project countries and regions may change time to time. Please get in touch with IHH Water Well Office before you make up your mind about the country of your choice for donating for opening a well.

The execution of projects for construction of standard wells takes six to twelve months in African and Asian countries.
