Our Impact

Ibn Al-Qayyim said, “The heart on its journey towards Allah the Exalted is like that of a bird. Love is its head, and fear and hope are its two wings. When the head is healthy, then the two wings will fly well. When the head is cut off, the bird will die. When either of two wings is damaged, the bird becomes vulnerable to every hunter and predator.”

How We Work

Every year Ramadan Legacy creates online fundraising campaigns in order to respond to the needs of the world’s poorest people. Our users donate their Zakat and Sadaqah to transparent, accountable and on the ground projects that provide aid to those who need it the most. 100% of the money that is raised goes directly to our delivery partners who then deploy the resources on the ground.

Zakat Syria Campaign 2016

  • Rehabilitation of boreholes.
  • Total beneficiaries 27,598
  • Status: complete

Project Description

The goal of the project was to increase the access to safe and clean water in Rural Damascus (Rhaybeh and Juroud) through drilling new boreholes and rehabilitation of old boreholes to make them functional. The main water networks and pipes were also extended.

Process

  1. Drilling Boreholes – boreholes were drilled and provided with equipment and extension of network.
  2. Water Pumping Test – water was tested within 24 hours of drilling the borehole to ensure specifications were accurate and according to requirement i.e. flow, static head, dynamic head.
  3. Water Quality Test – the team took samples from the drilled boreholes and conducted water analysis which included physical, chemical and biology analysis.
  4. Installing the Borehole Equipment – this included submersible pumps, electric board, electric cable, plastic pipes, rope and NEVO cable which includes sensors to protect the submersible pump when water levels decrease under it.
  5. Water Network – to enhance access of water, networks were expanded from boreholes to entrance of neighborhoods. This means we could provide easy access to sufficient quantities of water.

Outcome

  • 7 new boreholes in Rhaybeh and extension of water network
  • Rehabilitation of 3 boreholes and expansion of water network in Juroud
