A message from the community


Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We the Ruga Community within Gwagwalada Area Council wish to write and express our profound gratitude to your team for drilling a borehole for us.

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

Snake attacks used to be the fear of most people when you walk through bush baths at night. Women, in search for water have been victims in the past. With mounting security challenges, those who dare to go out in lonely areas are exposed to the dangers of kidnapping or rape. A water well close to the people of Ruga, reduces the risk. Glory to God.
