Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre recently completed its latest drilling of boreholes in KwaMashu, KZN and Lenasia, Gauteng. The latest installations take the number of boreholes commissioned in 2021 to three, with a fourth one in the pipeline that will be drilled in the Free State.
These boreholes are strategically commissioned at either a masjid or Islamic centre to grant access to the entire community. If none of the preferred location options are available, then drilling at the local police station or any other community venue is considered with the proviso that there is responsible management of the borehole.
With the help and support of the Muslim community and generous donors, thus far, 17 boreholes have been drilled by the Centre over the past nine years. This is an estimated investment of R1.5 million.
The areas that have benefitted are:
- Waterloo – KwaZulu-Natal
- Umkomaas – KwaZulu-Natal
- Silverglen – Chatwsworth - KwaZulu-Natal
- Mobeni Heights – KwaZulu-Natal
- Newlands – KwaZulu-Natal
- Pietermaritzburg – KwaZulu-Natal Midlands
- Sea Cow Lake – Durban – KwaZulu-Natal
- Port Elizabeth – Eastern Cape
- Illovo – KwaZulu-Natal South Coast
- Reservoir Hills – Durban – KwaZulu-Natal
- Rietvlei, Azaadville, Gauteng
- KwaMashu - – KwaZulu-Natal
- Lenasia - Gauteng
“Alhumdulillah, during the recent drought and water crisis in the country, many that have opened their hearts to this project which secures basic water provision for the community. We encourage Muslims to get involved, especially in the current climate where our country is going through so much of difficulty. The reward is ongoing and perpetual.”
Darul Ihsan also assists with the repairing of boreholes. If you would like to find out more about this undertaking kindly contact our offices.
