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

Maraban Shamaki is in Nigeria's Nasarawa State. This community on the outskirts of the Federal Capital Territory but is strangely cut off from many basic social amenities, including safe water. 

Residents had to cross a busy highway, or depend on a seasonal water hole, for their drinking, cooking, and carrying out other domestic chores. They were always at the mercy of diarrhea, cholera, and all manner of other water-borne diseases that sometimes result in death.

Lifewater Canada donors funded the replacement of hand-powered pumps on three broken-down wells, including this one at a local school, and the drilling of one new well.

Now, the people of Maraban Shamaki have access to safe water with ease. They are living with good health, and children are attending school regularly because they are healthy and don’t need to spend lots of time each day fetching water.
