A message from the community

The entire Angoro community are appreciating you for the well-done job for repairing a water well in the community. May God almighty bless you. Words cannot express our thanks and happiness.

Rev. Rabo Tanimu Barde, Evangelical Church Winning All, Angoro

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

This hard-to-reach village is in the Kokona district of Nigeria's Nasarawa State. It attracted settlers from nearby communities because of its commercial activities. People needed water for drinking and other households needs but the hand pump on their local well was broken so people had to walk long distances for their water.

Many women in the community also require water for their soap-making businesses. Helen, a mother of three, says her business struggled to make profits due to lack of water. Going to fetch the water everyday meant she lost precious time for other activities.

"Sometimes my legs hurt so much and were swollen from walking to fetch water. Instead of using my small income to invest more and grow my business, I kept spending on buying water and hospital treatments."

With Lifewater Canada's support, Helen and other women in Angoro now have a repaired hand pump on their well, plus two new wells. They can dedicate more time to activities that improve their economic well-being instead of spending it looking for water.

Every $1 you give provides a child with safe water for a year!
