Our Mission

One of our many humanitarian missions is to drill boreholes in villages that will provide clean and high quality drinking water for villages that have no access to clean drinking water.

 

 

Drilling Borehole like this will provide a source of pure drinking water to rural communities of about 4000 people.   This kind of borehole yields up to 30,000 gallons, of extremely clean and high quality water per day.

Wouldn't changing the lives and future of a child and people living in extreme poverty be one of the best things you could ever do or be part of?

That's what happens when you decide to support the drilling of one or more boreholes in one or more Nigerian villages. Your action will stop infant death, the wailing and weeping sound of helpless mothers that rises at midnight of another child convulsing or dying from water borne diseases.

The Need for this Project

More than 80% of people in Nigeria’s rural areas have no access to clean drinking water, making this one of the biggest health problems facing our people.
 
Many villages depend on polluted water sources such as unprotected wells like this one and rivers and streams where livestock drink and people bathe.

An Open Well

The boy in the picture is carrying yellowish colored water fetched from the pond beside his picture.  He is taking it home to Mama for drinking, cooking and for bathing. When you hold this water in a glass you can see living organism crawling and swimming it.  The villagers’ contract water-borne diseases like cholera, dysentery, and diarrhea and many children and adult have died and many more are dying from drinking this kind of water.

 

WHEELCHAIRS


 It is a common sight to see crippled children and adult crawling on their knees and hands on the streets of Nigeria begging in 90 to 100 degree humidity weather. These individuals are painful sight of indescribable human suffering. Their knees became callous from years of crawling on them. I means as callous as a camel’s hoof. Why are they crawling? Because they are so poor, they can not afford a wheel chair.

ORPHANAGES


The people who is pure and without fault, from God the Father’s point of view, is the one who takes care of orphans and widows… James 1:27


More than 12 million children have lost one or both parents to AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, and more than a third of them are not in school, New York-based Human Rights Watch said in a report.
The sad conditions of these children is what is driving us to work with existing orphanages all across Nigeria in providing them with money, clothes, foods, school and medical supplies.
