For many years now, the community of Nzerem has been suffering because of water. Located in steppe and desert terrain, Nzerem is one of the poorest community in Ehime Mbano in Imo State, Nigeria. The inhabitants have to obtain water from overflow collectors of small, unsanitary river. Boys and girls have to drop out of school and walk eight to nine miles in deep down valleys a day to get water that the family needs.
The project will drill a deep water well|borehole, casting, pumps and pipes, overhead tank and installation.
Drilling of a water borehole for Nzerem community will lift them out of the cycle of poor health and poverty, help them to survive, plant crops, raise livestock, and have water to drink.
