Potable water supply to 13000 villagers in Nigeria(29363): last three months report.


The last three months have been very interesting in the history of our project as there has been increased pressure on this facility!

While the index population served by this project is increasing, some private and government water holes in some of the neighboring communities are no longer functioning due to poor maintenance.

Erratic public power supply is also having it’s toll on our facility as average daily power supply to the community is about six hours. This limits pumping water for distribution to average of six hours daily.

Consequently, large crowds gather regularly and sometimes quarrel and fight around the available supply taps daily to fetch water once power supply comes.

There is therefore urgent need for funds for alternate power source such as solar power and extension of our supply to additional points to decongest the already existing supply points.

Looking forward to having access to funds to solve the above two challenges.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Dako Mamudu.

2020 second quarter report on Dako Foundation water project.

Our plan to provide potable water supply to 30,000 rural dwellers is still in progress.
However, not much progress has been made in this project since the last report.

The communities that have already been connected in this project continue to enjoy fairly good supply occasionally interrupted as a result of power outage.

We are still confronted with two challenges; poor power supply and inability to extend the facility to the remaining rural settlements. The need for funds to complete this project as soon as possible can not be over emphasized as costs are skyrocketing due to inflation in the country.

More over, a part of the perimeter fence around the water installation collapsed two weeks ago following a heavy downpour of rain. Efforts are being made to replace the fallen fence and also instal America barb wires to secure the installation.

While we thank our numerous donors so far for what they have done so far, we look forward for more donations to enable us complete this project for our index communities.

Looking forward your cooperation.

My best regards,

Dr Dako Mamudu,

Chief Executive Officer,

Dako Foundation For Rural Healthcare And Education.

POTABLE WATER SUPPLY TO 13000 VILLAGERS IN NIGERIA {29363}

Provision of poatble water supply to 13,000 villagers in Nigeria {13000} is still ongoing.

We continued to provide potable water to some of our index rural dwellers till the last week of February 2020 when  some electric poles supplying power to the communities fell following a heavy downpour with heavy winds; thus cutting off necessary power to pump water into the reservoir for onward distributioon to the public.

As at the time of writing this report no effort has been made by the power authority to restore power to these communities. Children and women in these communities now resort to trekking long distances to rivers to fetch water.

Solution to this challenge is solar power source to power our water supply.

We urgently need more donations to enable us provide solar power for pumping water to overhead water tanks for onward distribution to our index population.

My  best regards,

Dr Dako Mamudu.

Chief Executive Officer.
