Summary

Project Summary: The people of Zokotu community in Kuje Area Council, Nigeria have lived without clean water all their lives. The only available source of drinking water available to the small village of over 2000 persons looks visibly muddy and unclean for animal consumption, yet the people drink it without any form of purification. Many children have died due to complications arising from the consumption of the dirty water, while others suffering skin reactions and other water borne diseases.
