Some team members and a village at the site
It is a moment of joy to finally see potable water running in a Rural outskirt of Ibadan, Korukoru community in Akinyele local government area of Oyo state Nigeria. It will be recalled that the dwellers of this ancient village have suffered numerous devastating consequences of lack of access to clean and potable water in about 300 years history of this village's existence. Oak Rural Health Organization has gathered resources from far and near to put smiles on the faces of these villagers and the neighbouring settlements with estimated population of over 500.
A recent visit of our team to the village reported how happy the villagers were to have their water needs met through construction of the concrete stantion and installation of the storage tank. The whole village now has water for both domestic use and some of their businesses that directly depend on water availability. Our team also had a taste and confirmed how potable the water is. However, the people complained that they could not fetch as much as they ought to, there is limitation to number of buckets that each person can fetch because the borehole is not supplying the water quantity that corresponds with the number of users. The Organization has since directed the engineers to look into this and advise properly on getting the problem solved.
While appreciating our supporters' generosity, we still solicit for more support towards final completion of this project for the benefit of the poor villagers.
