Every Year, Thousands of Children in Thar Die Due To Famine And Water Scarcity.

Thousands of children die each year due to famine and water scarcity. This figure might seem a little over the board, but this is the sad reality for the people of Thar. You can not imagine a single day of your life without water, but the people of Thar have been living for years in the absence of such a basic necessity.
The extent of the water shortage faced by Tharis is simply unimaginable. Even with a massive population of around 1.6 million people, to this date, Thar remains a neglected region that suffers a great deal due to food and water scarcity.
The lives of Tharis are prime examples of misery and helplessness.

You can put an end to this never-ending misery of the people of Thar by supporting Ekplatebiryani in Thar donation. You can make efforts for the people of Thar by donating to Ekplatebiryani for the installation of water hand pumps. 

The answer to your question is Sadaqah Jariyah. You get the ultimate forever-living reward from your contributions. You get a sense of fulfillment and duty by serving mankind.

Sadaqah Jariyah will benefit you in this world and in the afterlife as well.
Let’s move forward to learn more about the struggles of the people of Thar and how we can play our part in Thar’s development and make their lives bearable.

Inhumane Conditions of Thar

Inhumane Conditions of Thar
Now as you all have a slight idea regarding the inhumane living conditions of Thar, are you ready to unearth more about the real-life horrors faced by the people of Thar on a daily basis?

Let us tell you that 1.6 million people of Thar are deprived of basic necessities such as clean water, education, sanitation, and food. As a result, they have been forced to survive on unsafe and contaminated water which is a root cause of various diseases.

It is a widely known fact that a smooth supply of food sources is directly connected to water supply hence if any region is water-stressed it will automatically become food scarce. The same is the case with Thar. Since there is a shortage of clean drinking water, crops are adversely affected which has led to years of famine in the region.
Thar receives very little rain annually, which is never sufficient for agriculture. Typically, Tharis survive on millets as the sole resource of food. However, in recent times water is running excessively short to the extent where it has become hard to even cultivate millet.
In addition to that, Tharis lack other vital resources such as proper health facilities. Without water, food, and proper health facilities all they are left with is grief and helplessness of witnessing their loved ones, especially young children suffering. Children are the most vulnerable in such situations, that is why in Thar child mortality has skyrocketed in the past few years.
Imagine the agony and helplessness of those parents who witness their children dying in front of their eyes yet there is nothing they can do to save them.

One such story of helpless parents among thousands of other stories is the story of Sawutri. A 40-year-old woman, Sawutri narrated her reminiscence of the past when she had to hopelessly hear her children crying their lungs out due to thirst and hunger. As the water scarcity situation was far from improving the crops could hardly survive. Her husband went to Karachi (Pakistan) in hopes of earning, yet he could only make $37 per month. 

Back in Thar, Sawutri and her children were suffering a great deal and every new morning brought plenty of new problems for them.
In these testing times, Sawutri used to walk kilometers in scorching heat daily in order to watch whatever little water she could for the survival of her children. She worked tirelessly to feed her malnourished children, yet one of them got so sick that led to his death. In the absence of her husband with a dying child to save, Sawutri felt defeated and stuck.  
However, her maternal affection and care did not let her give up.  
She kept on working hard and doing whatever she had in her power to save her suffering child. She knew that she could not let her child face the same fate that thousands of other children in the region had faced. 
The good part is that Sawutri’s hard work and dedication did not go down the drain. Multiple NGOs took notice of the plight of Tharis. Then initiatives were taken and wells and tube wells were built in various districts of Thar. Due to this Sawutri’s child escaped the horrific fate that awaited him. An uninterrupted and regular supply of clean water saved his life. 

However, this is not the point where we stop. Still, there are thousands of people suffering. As Thar has a massive population the need for the installation of hand pumps persists. There is still a long way to go in order to end the sufferings of every single person of Thar. There are still thousands of women like Sawutrir waiting for help to arrive.  

This is where you can help. If you would like to help the people of Thar, please consider donating to Ekplatebiryani. Help us save women like Sawutrir.

Advantages of Installing Hand Pumps In Thar

Thar spans a huge area with 4 major districts. Each district comprises multiple villages. A minimum of one hand pump is required in each village in order to provide proper access to food and water resources for the locals.

An adequate number of hand pumps in various villages of Thar is the only solution to their problems. Hand pumps can benefit Tharis in countless ways such as:
  • Improved water supply will result in a sufficient and proper supply of crops.
  • Once crops are grown properly, there will no longer be food insecurity.
  • Cattles and animals belonging to Tharis will no longer suffer and will be able to get a sufficient food supply for their survival.
  • Overall hygiene and sanitation of Tharis will improve due to regular access to water.
  • Once sanitation is improved, there will be control over the spread of various lethal diseases.
  • Infant and maternal mortality rates will reduce significantly. In short, the general health of Tharis will improve.
  • The future of Thar and its people will eventually get better.

Contribute to Thar Donation in Return of Sadaqah Jariyah

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) once stated:

“When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except, for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah [ceaseless charity], knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him [the deceased].” (Muslim)

You can easily find yourself at the receiving end of such an immense and everlasting reward known as Sadaqah Jariyah by simply contributing to Thar donation. Your donations can help us maximize the installation of hand pumps in Thar, which in return will help you maximize your rewards in this world and hereafter.

2 Decades of Plentiful Safe Water Donation For Thar

Several NGOs have taken initiatives in order to curb the issue of water shortage. The welfare work done by every NGO is well-appreciated and holds immense significance. However, the issue that Ekplatebiryani highlighted is that most of the hand pumps installed within Thar are hardly 50 to 70 feet deep.

This means that hand pumps which are merely 50 to 70 feet deep are likely to dry up soon and then again Tharis will be faced with a water shortage. We look forward to coming up with a long-term solution for water scarcity in Thar.
This is why our team has been installing hand pumps that are 150 plus feet deep in various villages of Thar. It is estimated that these pumps can efficiently provide Tharis with clean and safe water for the upcoming 20 years.
In addition to that, team Ekplatebiryani has taken measures to ensure the maintenance of these hand pumps. For this very reason, we have provided the locals with tools and training so that they can look after their sole water source on their own.
All the above-mentioned initiatives and efforts have done wonders for the people of Thar in regard to water scarcity.

Donate to Install a Hand Pump in Thar with your name or your loved one's

Water charity holds immense rewards such as Sadaqah Jariyah for the donor. This means even after the donor has long forgotten about his donation, the reward will still keep up adding in his name. No doubt, providing access to clean water for struggling families is the best possible way to earn rewards by taking care of Allah’s creation.

With the help of Ekplatebiryani, you can earn these rewards. You can sponsor a hand pump in either your or your loved one’s name and gather the massive rewards for quenching the thirst of an entire village.
Coining your name or the name of your loved one ensures that whenever someone benefits from the hand pump donated by you, they can specially make a prayer for you by taking your name or your loved one’s name.

Thar is a huge area with four major districts. Each district has various villages. At least one hand pump in each village is needed for the residents to have regular access to clean water.

The hand pumps will help them in the following ways:

  • They will be able to grow better crops.
  • There will be improved food security.
  • Their animals will be fed better and live longer to help them.
  • They will have better hygiene.
  • The water availability will help control the spread of various diseases.
  • Maternal and infant mortality rates are likely to go down.
  • Their future prospects will improve.
Each hand pump will be sufficient for various
families… to help them live a longer, healthier life.
And, you… You will be rewarded for every drop of water they consume for as long as the hand pumps function…

Sadaqah E Jariyah For Years

The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity, beneficial knowledge and a righteous son who will pray for him.” [Muslim]
With these hand pumps, the donor gets to do the best form of charity that is ongoing.
Imagine the best charity to keep adding sawaab all your life. And, after your death. You may also install or contribute in the name of a loved one… and gather rewards for them as well as yourselves.

20 Years Of Clean Abundant Water Supply

A lot of NGOs are working in Thar to fight famine and water shortages… We appreciate all the efforts.
The problem we noticed, however, is that most of the hand pumps installed are merely 50 to 70 feet deep…
Which means that a 70 feet deep hand pump is likely to dry up soon. We want to give them a longer lasting solution.
Our team has been installing hand pumps about 150+ feet deep. These hand pumps are likely to provide for the next 20 years or more. InshaAllah.
We have also decided to take extra measures for its longevity… We are providing tools to the locals for the repair and maintenance of these pumps so that they have an uninterrupted supply of water for the next 20 years.

Get a Handpump in your name or your loved one's

Making the water accessible to people is a Sadqa-e-jariya… the rewards for which continue for years even after your death.
This is the most beautiful way to help people and gain rewards. You can sponsor a hand pump in your or loved one’s name… and gather the rewards of providing water to an entire village.
Please email us or add a note to tell us the specific name you’d like to have the hand pump created for! You can email us at or chat via our website.
