Deep Bore Hole Project
At huge costs, the Foundation has embarked upon a programme of constructing Deep Water Boreholes, each one costs upwards of £100,000 having the capacity to service 100,000 people and their livestock with guaranteed, clean and disease-free water. This is a landmark project for the area and one which will raise standards of health and well being in the areas and in to the future.
It is the worst drought in modern history which has turned into famine. Nearly 40% of the population have no access to safe drinking water. Nearly 14 million people are in urgent need of aid and assistance, 800,000 people are at risk of death due to lack of water. Every 15 seconds a child dies through the denial of the basic human right of access to safe WATER.
Therefore, the Al-Khair Foundation has launched our newest campaign: the Deep Bore Hole Project
The deep bore-hole water well project comprises of many uses and applications taken into account. These include the deep bore-hole, a power station, a generator hours, water reservoirs, water towers, sintex loft tanks, water filtration plants with filtered water supply system, waste water supplies for cattle and other livestock, direct water pumps from the reservoirs to carriers for supplying water to the areas worst affected by the drought and all in all InshAllah it will be a self-sustainable system which will provide clean water to the inhabitants of the lands for a minimum of 20 years.
The total cost of one deep bore-hole water well is £100,000. You can either pay the entire amount, or a share of £1000, £500 or £250.
The following will highlight the process of the project:
- Our aim is to urgently raise 3 million for Deep Water Boreholes, 20 water tankers, 50 rainwater reservoirs, 100 water tanks in various affected villages. 20 water tankers will supply water to these villages and medical educational establishments from the nearest Deep Water Boreholes.
- The Deep Bore-Hole: This bore-hole is dug deep down the earth which meets the underground natural water reservoir. This well provides as access to this water (which is normally difficult to reach) by sophisticated pipe-line engineering from the surface.
- The water extracted from the ground is stored in the large water reservoirs
- The water reservoirs are situated on the surface of the plant can hold up to 20-30 thousand litres of water.
- Water is also stored in the water towers that serve as an extra water reserve facility
- The transportation of the water from the ground-well-reservoirs is done by energy supplied to large motors from the generator room. This also serves power to other electrical equipment to different parts of the plant facility, like the water filtration plants.
- The water reservoirs will be capable of supplying water to carriers like large water trucks, which can transport water in large tanks to affect areas. This water can be used for basic utility like washing and cooking.
- Another part of the project facility is the power plant. This power plant houses the water filtration plant.
- The power plant uses the water from the reservoirs and wells to generate eco energy for the generator room. The power supplies are equally distributed from these houses.
- The water filtration plant also serves as water directly to the public for consumption. This is carried out at the water plant by taps. Here, public can get access to pure water for drinking purposes. This purified water is also stored in the loft water tanks (sintex) for bulk supplies.
- In the whole process, waste water is also incurred. Waste water (dirty water not ideal for human consumption) is transferred to the cattle and livestock section. Here, animals can be brought for drinking this water.
