After the horrific shooting in New Zealand the entire world was left in tears.  Fifty innocent souls died for no reason except being Muslim.  A tragic event indeed leaving the victim's families completely broken.  How do we bring closure to such a devastation?  The truth is...we might not be able to, however, in Islam there is a concept called Sadaqah Jariyah.  

Sadaqah jariyah is charity that continues to benefit an individual after they die.  For example, building a water well in Africa on behalf of someone who dies so they get the good deeds and reward that the well produces.   This is why we hope to raise funds to build a water well for each victim in the New Zealand shooting that was killed.  A water well that will honor them and bring them good deeds for years to come.    

This campaign is being led by two individuals: Khaled Beydoun, author of American Islamophobia and  Sajjad Shah, author and Founder of Muslims of the World.  These two have spent the past week honoring the victims by sharing their stories.  They have partnered up with Pious Projects, a non profit based out of Chicago that specializes in creating water wells in different parts of Africa.  Pious Projects is a 501c3 (tax deductible) and has built over 900 water wells. 

Any amount of donation is great, a lot of small donations add up and God will reward you for each $1 I am sure of that.  If you are interested in sponsoring a well yourself, or on behalf of your business or community, let us know. We hope to see this vision come true of having 50 wells in Africa providing water for entire villages while at the same time honoring our brothers and sisters that were killed in New Zealand.  Thank you so much for your support. Below are pictures of the victims as well as images of what the wells would look like...

***After recent events, all funds will be transferred to Pious Projects to finish the wells.
