ACTNews, SUKABUMI REGENCY – The Global Wakaf-ACT has built a Waqf Water Well in Cangklek Hamlet, Gegerbitung Village, Gegerbitung District, SUkabumi Regency. The Waqf Water Well construction was completed on Tuesday (6/1/2021).

“The area is prone to drought. If there is a drought for a whole month, the Gegerbitung Village will be the most affected area. If so, the residents can only buy the water or wait for a free clean water tank since the river is far away,” said Resdiana Pratama from the Global Wakaf-ACT Sukabumi Team.

The Waqf Water Well from Global Wakaf-ACT was constructed with 30 meters depth. Resdi hopes the Waqf Water Well can facilitate the residents to access clean water during the dry season. “Alhamdulillah, the flowing water is huge and abundant. Hopefully, it can cover the entire residents’ needs of clean water during the drought,” hoped Resdi.

In addition to the Waqf Water Well construction, the Global Wakaf-ACT also carried out an environmental conservation in Cangklek Village. It was carried out in the form of replanting 100 mahogany trees and 30 durian trees in the village.

The purpose of planting mahogany trees is to absorb water so that during the dry season the water will not recede and dry out too much. Meanwhile, the durian tree is planted to empower the local community.

“These waqf trees are planted on a waqf land in Cangklek Village. Alhamdulillah, the residents are happy and grateful for this continuous program. Insha Allah, the residents will treat and maintain these trees well,” said Resdi.

Resdi hopes, in the future, the assistance from generous benefactors in the form of Waqf Water Well can continue to expand. “Especially in Sukabumi, hopefully, this Waqf Water Well and Waqf Trees can be implemented in other regions in need,” said Resdi.[]
