Zakir Ismail AKA Zakir Bashir AKA Zakir Chadaat
In Memory Of Zakir – A loving husband, father, son and friend lost too soon.
Whenever you met Zakir your day got better. Always there to lend a helping hand to those needing it, forever engrossed in working hard, getting jobs done but always ready to have a chat and a joke. His smile would light up a room and if you were lucky enough to have met him, you were guaranteed a friend for life. Someone you could rely on in your times of need, always willing to put others before him.
Most of us got to know him through work. He started working at EG just over a year ago but his presence and personality felt like we had known him a lifetime. So quiet and gentle, yet his personality filled up the room. He was cool, calm and collected the nicest character you could meet.
As friends and as a community we are fundraising for the family of former Team Member Zakir Bashir who died last week.
Zakir leaves behind a loving wife and 2 young children. His team mates across the offices are pulling together to help the rest of the family get through this very difficult time and build Ten water pumps in his name, these will be constructed in the poorest villages in the world.
We want to build 10 water pumps:
1) Kinniya, Sri Lanka £130
2) Layyah Punjab, Pakistan £150
You may also support the family.
Thank you for your support.
When a community or a village gets clean water for the first time, it’s the start of something truly life-changing. Right now, some of the world’s poorest and most marginalised people don’t have clean water to drink, decent toilets or hygiene. Without these basics, overcoming poverty is just a dream but when you help us to dig a well or install a tap stand in a community, you’re changing the lives of thousands of families. 785 million people in the world – one in ten – do not have clean water close to home. We will keep working until everyone, everywhere has clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. But we cannot do it without your support.
Benefit Mankind is providing water projects across the world, working with our partners to transform millions of lives every year by improving access to clean water, toilets and hygiene. Our water sanitation projects start from just £130.
If you donate towards any of our water hand pump, water well and borehole projects, we will provide you with a personalised feedback report which will show location and images with your named plaque, kindly let us know what name you require on the plaque when donating. Water projects can take between 3-6 months to complete.ten
