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.

Completed: April 8th, 2021

In Chibiri Village in Kuje Area Council, the villagers showed excitement as our team arrived to assess available water sources. At one well, we meet Aisha and Hadiza at the river. During the interaction with them, the informed us that the river is the major source of water for them. Frequent breakdown of the hand pumps, crowd at the available wells, leading to hours of waiting to collect water often discouraged them from going to the cleaner source of water. In the end, they come to the river where people do laundry and cow herders bring cows to drink to collect drinking water for their homes.

Asked if they treat the water collected from the river, they chuckled and waived it off as though, it meant nothing. Water treatment is a luxury, they cannot afford.
