In the recent past, we have responded to the carnage and loss of lives in Nandu village in Southern Kaduna, Nigeria. It stemmed from a herder/ farmer dispute . The destruction forced the villagers to live without shelter for many months. We are currently rebuilding homes in Nandu.
Our work in Southern Kaduna and Plateau states has given us a unique privilege to witness the lack of potable water in these communities. Many inhabitants get water from rivers which also serve for washing and bathing. Grazing animals also drink from the same source.
Fata Water Project
We are proposing to build 2 solar-powered boreholes (each ) with tanks for 3 communities.
Kwanga A serving 3000 people weekly
Kwanga B serving 2500 people weekly
Gwantu A serving 4000 people weekly
Gwantu Bserving 2500 people weekly
Nandu A serving 2000 people weekly
Nandu B serving 2500 people weekly
Each borehole project will cost about $3000. The 6 projects will cost a total of $18,000.00 This project will go a long way to strengthen the work of sharing the good news of the gospel in these communities. Particularly, it will encourage the missionaries serving and living in these hard-to-reach areas.
