A message from the community

Greetings to you from the people of our village. May you have long life and prosperity. We are grateful for your effort to rebuild our well which stopped working two years ago. Thank you. We pray that God will protect and uplift you.


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

Bakin Kogi is a village in Nasarawa State, a few kilometres from Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city. The small community is growing quickly because many people who work in Abuja cannot afford to live there and are settling in shanty towns like Bakin Kogi.

Like many of the other shanty towns, Bakin Kogi does not have safe water. Wells that were available have broken down, so people gather their water from the Bakin Kogi River.

From contaminants that are airborne to open defecation by both humans and animals, the water from the river remains a source of concern to inhabitants. Without a choice, many depend on this water at risk of disease.

The Lifewater team arrived and replaced the hand-powered pumps on two village wells, including this one. The repairs are a great relief to mothers, children, and even the men of this community. Everyone appreciates the donors of these repairs for their kind gesture and unprecedented goodwill extended.
