ECWA Church, Rije, Nigeria
Replacement of worn-out pump and repairing of well.
Completed: April 10th, 2021
Rije is a small community with over a thousand people. When our team visited and interacted with the villagers, they express the pain and stress they go through before they access water in the bush away from the village, we visited their source of water, it was a dug out where ground water collects. They had to wait for a long time for the water to collect. There is always a crowd waiting to collect even this water.
The two wells we worked on which have been down for over 5 years. The pastor in the village was more excited of our visit. He shared with us how the electric pump recently drilled by a Muslim origination is selectively used. We encouraged them that any well we fix should be free for all to access irrespective of religion.
After we revived the two wells that were down for about 5years, the village head and the village could not help but dance as they saw water. The pastor was so excited as he thanked us again and again as we were leaving.
