ACTNews, BEKASI - Since 2019, dozens of Waqf Wells have been built in Bekasi by Global Wakaf-ACT with the support of the endowers (waqifs) to meet needs and solve water crises. Water is an essential need, but the available water is sometimes not enough to meet the needs of every family.
One of the locations in Bekasi where waqf wells have been built is in Sukatenang Village, Sukawangi, Bekasi Regency. The Waqf Wells in this village was built to meet the needs of families and to support public facilities like mosques and schools. The benefits of the wells have been felt by many residents.
For this reason, towards the end of March, Global Wakaf-ACT Bekasi invites waqifs and partners to directly visit the construction sites of the Waqf Wells so that they will be motivated to further support this project and expand its blessing.
"The Waqf Well is the fruit of the management of waqf funds collected by Global Wakaf. The role of Waqif also has a big impact, especially in dealing with clean water problems, "explained Ihsan Hafizhan from the ACT Bekasi Program Department, Saturday (3/27/2021).
Azwar, one of the waqifs who had the opportunity to visit a Waqf Well in Bekasi, admitted that he was happy to see firsthand the benefits of the well. Moreover, it was built in the right location where residents really need water. "I invite the wider community to support this Waqf Well program. This is because there are still many areas in Indonesia that have trouble getting clean water," he said.
Global Wakaf also equips the waqf wells that they build with sanitary facilities. The water is used for various purposes. In Bekasi, the water wells are also used for ablution, bathing, washing, and for consumption. In fact, in some areas where the majority of the people are farmers, there are residents who use water from the Waqf Well to water their crops.
