Helping Hands is here to provide clean and accessible water facilities by building deep tube well, food and shelter to the needy of Balaganj Upazila, Sylhet Division in Bangladesh
I am Nechar Ali, born and brought up in Bangladesh in the area I am targeting to help. I lived there first eleven years of my life before I came over to the UK. I feel very much attached to the area and find it intolerable to see families and young children suffering due to the lack of clean and accessible water facilities, food and shelter.
Most of us have never really been thirsty. We've never had to leave our houses and walk six miles to fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean. Yet there are millions families and young children in Balaganj Upazila, Sylhet Division, Bangladesh who don't have clean water.
"Over 90 percent of child deaths are directly linked to contaminated water, lack of sanitation, and inadequate hygiene, without access to safe water for drinking, cooking and cleaning, children suffer most -their health, well-being and education are all affected and they are more likely to suffer from diarrhoea and other water-related diseases these can be fatal, killing over 1,400 children daily."
You can help save lives by building a well. For millions of people in developing countries getting water is not as simple as turning on the tap. They have to walk for miles to reach the nearest water source. And when they get there the water is dirty and diseased. They drink it knowing it could kill them.
Help us build wells in Bangladesh to provide families with clean, safe water and a hope for the future.
My mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person in Bangladesh
By building a deep tube well, we can give them reliable access to clean water for drinking, cooking, hygiene and more.
With your help I can provide clean and accessible water, and sanitation to greatly contribute to a reduction in child mortality. This would also change their lives for the better, improving their health, giving them more time to go to school and gain an education, as well as more time to just be kids and play with their friends.
I would be most grateful if you can support me with any amount at all. It would be much appreciated, and well used.
I am not sentimental about this. Hard noses and soft hearts is what I have, and I do hope you will for help. It will mean a great deal to me if you do so.
Bangladesh is affected by the natural occurrence of arsenic in the water table which often rules out shallow wells. In areas where this is the case, we need to dig deeper. The pumps we use also need to be more robust given the water table level, and the installations are often more remote and difficult to access, which invariably impacts cost. In order to meet this goal, I’m asking for donation from local businesses and individuals.
In other areas, where the water table is not contaminated and/or is easier to reach, we are able to build tube wells that feature a hand pump, and these cost less. Thus, some wells cost around £1,200 and others £300.
Please help us to achieve our target and goal by
• donating as much as you can.
• asking friends and colleagues to donate
• asking your family to contribute
Every donation makes a difference.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
