In August, Global Wakaf-ACT Gives Two Waqf Wells to Gazans

Aksi Cepat Tanggap, through Global Wakaf, has again built two new Waqf Wells in Khan Younis and Beit Hanon. These two wells are the 31st and 32nd wells that the ACT team built in Gaza.

ACTNews, GAZA — In August 2021, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) again built Waqf Wells in Gaza, Palestine. One of the wells was built in the Al-Agha area, Al-Qarara City north of Khan Younis Governorate, Southern Gaza. Al-Agha is constantly exposed to attacks and invasions from Zionist Israel. Its location is close to the eastern border of the Gaza Strip, and its proximity to Israeli settlements

Another well built in Beit Hanoun, northern Gaza. The two wells are 50 meters deep each.

Firdaus Guritno from ACT's Global Humanity Response team explains that these two wells are the 31st and 32nd wells built by ACT team in Gaza.

"Each well is capable of producing up to 10 thousand liters of water per hour. The cleanliness of the water produced from this water is guaranteed because there will be a filtration system before the water enters the holding tank," said Firdaus, Monday (8/16/2021).

Each well can supply the needs of 4,000 Gazans. Hence, with the activation of the two new wells, at least 8,000 Gazans can meet their clean water needs.

Mohammed Ibraheem Al Sbakhi (63), a resident of Beit Hanon, was greatly helped by the Waqf Well in his area. Ibraheem, who also helped the ACT team build this well, admitted that he was amazed when clear water came out of the Waqf Well.

“After drilling the well, we realized that water would continue to be available. The water quality has also improved compared to the water we have received before. The well helps us in life and steadfastness in this frontier area. We thank everyone who contributed to the construction of this well. We hope that you are always healthy and prosperous," said Ibraheem.[]
