A message from the community

On behalf of the people of Zhibata community, we sincerely thank Lifewater Canada/Nigeria for their effort in rehabilitating our damaged borehole. The borehole has been down for more than two years now. With the help of this organization, the story is different now. 


Yours faithfully,  

Rev. Habila A. Gbegme 



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

I am Reverend Habila. I am grateful to Lifewater for heeding our plea after we cried to the organization for help. We have been facing severe water scarcity for months due to the damage to our borehole. With the rehabilitation of the once-damaged borehole, our wives would no longer have to walk long distances in search of water. Our children's health will significantly improve, as will the hygiene of everyone in the community. Thank you so much for coming to our aid. We are all so happy for the kind effort of the organization. The restoration of our access to clean, potable water is a significant milestone for the people of the Zhibata Community.
