In today's covid world where we've all had to adjust to the new normal, washing of hands, and the consumption of safe/clean water cannot be over-emphasize in preventing and managing infectious diseases. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), safe water supplies, hygienic sanitation and good water management are fundamental to global health. One-tenth of global disease could be prevented by access to safe water and improving water management to reduce risks of water-borne infectious diseases. So, ensuring that rural communities in Nigeria have unrestricted access to safe water is a guaranteed way to curb and ultimate eradicate the spread of covid-19 and other infectious diseases, this is our mission. Concerning the above stated, we wish to appeal for your support and partnership in this journey. We can't do it alone. With your financial and/or material support, together, we can help save lives."
