Legacy Fund Small Wells in 2021

Alhamdhulillah.

In 2021 we were able to support our donors to construct 8 water wells in water scarce areas of Bangladesh. The wells were constructed as part of our Legacy Funds which enable our donors to establish a Sadaqah Jariyah for their loved ones who have passed away.

Aisha reported:
A man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and he said,
“O Messenger of Allah, my mother died suddenly without writing a will. I think if she could speak, she would give in charity. Will she have a reward if I give charity on her behalf?”
The Prophet said, “Yes.”
Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī , Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim

We would like to thank our implementing partner International Aid Campaign for their support in this work.

Maldivian Community Foundation

The Maldivian Community Foundation (MCF) is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation registered at the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Community Empowerment of the Maldives (reg. no. CR/158/2019), and registered as a tax exempt organisation at the Maldives Inland Revenue Authority. Its mission is to enable individuals, communities and partners to sustainably administer their charitable and philanthropic aspirations. It does this through the management of donated funds and disbursement of grants, scholarships and financial aid. We aim to follow the well-established community foundation model, tweaking it to the Maldivian context, and thereby positioning ourselves as the premier fundraising and grant making organisation in the country. We plan to provide tools and instruments for the Maldivian community to partake in perpetual charity (sadagah jariyah) and philanthropy, and support the non-governmental sector by providing grants and technical assistance. We would also be working closely with the government and national development partners to strengthen the governance and accountability of the non-profit sector.
