A message from the community

All members of our community wish to thank you and your entire organization for your kind gesture in rehabilitating our water well. Our community suffered untold hardship before the intervention of Lifewater. We really appreciate your effort and we pray that almighty God will bless your organization. 

  -- Gabriel O. Atabo, Community Leader

Some community details (provided by our in-country partners)

Aishatu Adamu is from Shagari Quarters 1, a community with a severe water shortage after its local well stopped working.

"We either buy water (which few people can afford) or cross the highway to get water from the stream, which is located at the opposite side of the community," Aishatu told us. "This is a dangerous journey, and we are risking our lives and the lives of our children. Today, we would like to thank Lifewater for  rehabilitating our well (including installing a new hand pump). This will provide us with a safe and reliable source of water. Thank you very much, and God bless you."
