A message from the community

With gratitude to God almighty, on behalf of the people of Angwan Wangibi in Kokona LGA of Nasarawa State, I write to show our appreciation over the three new wells offered to us by your agency. The community did not expect this wonderful project to come to reality until water began to come out of the wells. Tears of joy started to flow from the eyes of many people.

The whole community is happy, grateful, thankful, joyful, and appreciating the laudable project from you.

Yours faithfully,

Isuwa O. Kuje, Community Leader

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

Angwan Wangibi is a rural area occupied by the Eggon people of Nigeria in Nasarawa state. To meet its water needs, everyone depended on a single well and a nearby stream.

Isaac Daudu, the Mai Angwan (community leader), narrated the severity of the water scarcity in the community. He said: "Over 100 households were dependent on this one well. After two or three people fetched water from the well, it would dry up. Others had to wait about two hours for the well to recharge again."

Meanwhile, the water from the village stream is dirty and unsafe.

Lifewater's mission at Angwan Wangibi was to restore hope and show everyone love without a reason. By drilling three water wells, including this one, we showed the power of love exemplified by Jesus Christ.
