Borehole

A UK-based Non-Governmental Organization, Hope Spring Water, has provided a source of safe water to Zhidu community, a settlement in Lugbe axis of Nigeria’s Federal Capacity Territory, Abuja.

This is in line with the organisation’s aim of assisting people and communities in poor or remote areas in Africa to identify, develop and establish a sustainable source of clean water.

“Zhidu is a community that has experienced water scarcity, so they know what it is to value water. There is no one who values water as much as someone who has experienced water scarcity will. I thank the people for their cooperation and I believe the people will appreciate and maintain this borehole,” said Temple Oraeki, Country Director of Hope Spring Water.

The organisation has executed series of such projects in different communities in countries like Uganda, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sierra Leone.

Hope Spring Water has also spread her tentacles to Nigeria to alleviate poverty, as well as sanitation and hygiene challenges associated with lack of access to clean water in selected areas.

With successful projects previously carried out across the six geopolitical zones since her commencement in 2017, Hope Spring Water in Nigeria has reached over 20, 000 people in barely a year and remain focused to solving water, sanitation and hygiene problems in the country.
