We wish to thank you for your prompt intervention to our request by repairing the faulty boreholes in our community. We are really appreciating your work well done as the boreholes are now working normal. The repair of these 4 boreholes has reduced our stress of going to fetch fresh water.

Also, at times our children cross roads from one Angwa to another just to fetch water, which at times they get knocked down by vehicles but with your intervention, that has stopped.

The people are no longer complaining about scarcity of water and all thanks to you.

The people of the community say that words alone can not express our gratitude.

May God Almighty bless you.

Project Summary

The Christian Association of Nigeria, Dukpa branch invited us to this community as part of their drive towards ministering to both physical and spiritual needs of the people. Our visit to Dukpa revealed the extent of poor maintenance culture. Six wells we available, out of which only 2 we functional. The other 4 had been abandoned for years. The wells we left to children to play with. And they innocently filled the wells with debris. At the time of our visit, there was some little quarrels over chieftaincy title. Trying to avoid getting caught in the conflict, we informed the community that we will go somewhere else. Sensing the opportunity, they were about to miss, they dropped their differences and urged us to support the community by repairing the broken wells. Thankfully, we were able to fix all four abandoned wells and the joy of the community was without limit. The water need was so bad that folks will steal behind leaking tanks from compounds of those who have access to water and collect water.
