Water project that supports 20,000 beneficiaries a month


Stanmore Jafferys (SJ)’s flagship initiative in conjunction with WF-Aid’s Ali Asghar Water Appeal 2020-21, the Gaza Water Desalination Project, has now been completed and is fully operational providing clean water to 20,000 beneficiaries a month.

After six months of construction and despite various challenges such as COVID, the project was delivered just before the blessed month of Ramadhan, Alhamdulillah.

Water supplies had started end of March this year, however stopped abruptly during the month of Ramadhan due to the situation towards the latter part of month.

Last year SJ held their second Ali Asghar Water Appeal (AAWA) Sportive and as a community successfully raised over £100,000 for WF-AID’s flagship appeal to bring life-changing sustainable WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) initiatives to those who are less fortunate and whose only hope is generosity. Once again, SJ rose to the challenge and affected humanity in so many ways in #makingadifferencetogether by #givingthroughsport.

Furthermore, SJ has two more projects that are currently underway and more will be shared when the projects are completed in due course.

WF-AID’s AAWA has facilitated several projects in water-scarce areas in 2020-21, including:

  • Gaza Water Desalination Project
  • Wells construction and regeneration in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and India
  • Building washrooms and a submersible wells project in Pakistan
  • Water irrigation project in Afghanistan
  • Rehabilitating a school’s washroom facilities in the West Bank, Palestine

Stanmore Jafferys are delighted to have fundraised for three of these significant projects.

A spokesperson at SJ says: “We have been truly humbled and blessed to have your support throughout the AAWA 2020 campaign and there are far too many people to thank – our sponsors, supporters, donors, riders, and volunteers who have helped us throughout this journey. For now, let us keep #cycling and #makingadifferencetogether by #givingthroughsport”
