It was another record breaking moment in an ancient village of Korukoru in Ibadan Nigeria. The village in over 3 centuries of its existence has been without potable water with its residents struggling for water to drink and for other purposes. The village of hundreds of people has suffered a lot of setbacks on their health and economic means of survival.
Oak Rural Health Organization with lean resources has mobilised, through community involvement and participation to ensure that the problem becomes "a thing of the past". The borehole drilling which got the entire villagers rejoicing was done. In our usual system of making the community a major stakeholder in resource mobilisation towards problem solving, they were actively involved in our local fundraising activities which led to the procurement of other plumbing accessories for the final finishing. Now that the project is almost complete, we need a little fund for construction of concrete stantion on which the water storage tank will be placed. Your generous donations at this point will enable a timely completion of this project. Then, the community will have an uninterrupted access to sustainable water supply.
