This Ramadan, Do Sadaqa-E-Jariya By Getting A Hand Pump Installed In The Name of Your Late Loved Ones

To Realize Our Vision, We Have Partnered With

Fasting in summer is a bit difficult…
Imagine you’re fasting and the electricity goes out…
The temperature is touching 40 Celcius (or 104 Fahrenheit)…
How desperately would you wait for Iftar?
To drink glass after glass of cool, sparkling water?
But, at the Iftar time, you have half a glass of dirty water…
That’s how it is for Muslims in Thar…
No access to clean drinking water…
They have to travel to nearby villages and are lucky if they can find a good water source within an hour’s distance.

About Ek Plate Biryani

Ek Plate Biryani is a registered NGO based in Canada
We started out in 2019 to provide a platform to people from all around the world to help those in distress.
Initially, we began with feeding the vulnerable in Pakistan, but, over the time, we have expanded our domain of work in terms of services as well as area.
We are now operating in 5 countries: Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Philippines, and Uganda.
We provide proofs to our donors on our social media as well as privately, if requested.
Our teams are dedicatedly working to provide food, access to clean water, treatment solutions, education support, and aid in emergencies.

Our Vision

We envision a world without hunger… a planet where no one has to be uncertain about their primary needs.

A population of 1.6 million people is living without access to clean,
fresh, drinkable water in the extremely hot desert…

Every year, they see hundreds of their children, elderly, and animals
die of thirst, malnourishment, and water-borne diseases…

But they are unable to help their dying loved ones…
This Ramadan, let’s try to help people like Khushboo get access to clean water within their village…
So, they don’t have to travel long distances to bring clean, drinkable water.
Khushboo lives in Sayanser village in Thar with her family of ten people.
Her husband and sons work for little wages, while Khushboo with her daughters takes care of the house, cooking, and fetching water.
The closest water source is about 30 minutes from her home…
30 minutes to go there…
Stand in a long queue to pull water out of a well…
And, 30 minutes to bring back 2 pots of water…
Her ten family members need much more water than 2 pots can carry…
She has to make several rounds to bring back enough to fulfill her family’s water needs.
The thought of Ramadan must be terrifying…
How difficult would it be to bring water in such high temperatures while fasting?

We, however, can help Khushboo save her family, give her
relief, and give them all a chance at better lives.

Water Can Change Lives In Thar

Did you know that Thar becomes full of greenery every time it rains?
Thar is a fertile desert…
…which means, if there is sufficient water, they can grow their crops and do agriculture.
Their crops can make them not only self-sufficient in food, but also improve their financial conditions and overall quality of life…
The better economic conditions will allow their children to pursue education, too…

The only problem is that rainfall is rare…
…and unreliable…

The desert of Thar faces severe water scarcity because it relies on rainfall…
If we join hands, Thar can see a better future…
We all can change the lives of millions…
One deep-well water hand pump at a time.

Thar: A Graveyard of Hand Pumps

An ordinary hand pump can be installed within a few days… because it is dug down to only 50 to 70 feet deep…
Most of the water-scarce villages in Thar have such low underground water levels that with 80 feet, the hand pump fails to bring up water after a few weeks or months…
That is why, Thar is sometimes called a “graveyard of hand pumps.”

Ek Plate Biryani aims for longer-lasting solutions: Deep-Well Hand Pumps

Hand Pumps To Last 15 - 20 Years: Hows & Whys?

A deep-well hand pump goes down to about 150 feet deep
Hand pumps with such depth easily cater to most areas with water scarcity.
These hand pumps work well in most of the Thar villages and last long.
We ensure longevity of hand pumps by providing the locals with the tools and training to repair and maintain the hand pump.
Our team visits the hand pump sites on a regular basis to check up on the proper functioning and to make sure that the villagers are not facing any issues.
These hand pumps stand out with some great benefits:
  • Fresh water within their village
  • Last about 15 to 20 years
  • Good for 250 – 400 people
  • Saves 3 to 5 hours each day for the women
  • Sufficient for about 800 animals
  • Help reduce deaths (due to diseases) by 40%

Sadqa E Jariya With The Best Form Of Charity

These two hadiths tell us the best ongoing charity.
Donating a deep-well water hand pump, which will last for years to come, will keep adding to your good deeds for years.
InshaAllah.

Sending Blessings & Rewards To Late Loved Ones

The best way to express our love to our late loved ones is by doing charity on their behalf…
The rewards of which will be cherished by them more than anything else…
And, what’s better than donating sadqa-e-jariya on their behalf with the best form of charity?

You can donate a hand pump in their name to honor their memory and send
them rewards that will continue for years!
InshaAllah.

Ek Plate Biryani -- An Organization Created To Help YOU Reach Out To Those In Need

Ek Plate Biryani is the brainchild of a handful of us Canadian residents who wanted to give back to society.
We knew so many in the world are suffering. And, we wanted to help them.
When we set out to donate, we didn’t know who to trust. Most of the organizations did not offer enough proof.
There, we decided to go the extra mile and create a platform where anyone from any part of the world can help the needy…
Hence, Ek Plate Biryani came into being.
Ek Plate Biryani is a registered Not-For-Profit Organization based in Canada and operating in Pakistan and Bangladesh on a regular basis.
Our team includes a number of trained, professional, and honest operation managers and quality control managers, along with several volunteers.
We aim to help people in every possible way. So far, we have the following projects under our belt:
  • Ek Plate Biryani distributes ration packages containing full month’s grocery door-to-door in underprivileged areas regularly.
  • We provide fresh, ready-to-eat meals for needy individuals. Over the last year, we have distributed food to 700,000 people.
  • Our team has installed 18 hand pumps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, for the Rohingya community.
  • In Thar, Pakistan, we have installed 194 hand pumps to cope with water shortages.
  • We help a street school in Karachi with healthy breakfast and lunches for students.
  • We have donated dialysis machines to SIUT, Pakistan’s best urology center.
All this was possible because of your help.
In our setup, every penny is accounted for. We ensure you receive the proof whenever you need them.
This organization has been built for YOU. Where you can come forward to improve the conditions of your fellow beings.

This time, we are working to raise funds for hand pumps in Thar.

Our team at Ek Plate Biryani has decided to help as many of them as possible by installing hand pumps.
So far, with Allah’s help, we have successfully installed 194 handpumps in different villages across Thar… which means hundreds of people already have easy access to clean water.
But, this is not enough.
Thousands are still waiting.
And, for them, we are raising funds this Ramadan.
We want to install hand pumps in the villages still waiting for water.
These hand pumps will allow them easy access to clean water in their own village for years to come.
InshaAllah.
You can join this movement by donating money and spreading the word.
To ensure 100% transparency, we take pictures and videos of the projects for proof. They are shared on our website, Facebook, and Instagram, as needed.
The rest can be shared with you upon request.
We share pictures of our work on social media for those who want to have a look before donating to our causes.
