Provision of Portable Water
Water is a vital element in each of our lives. Not only is it essential to our health, but also we use it for numerous household tasks. The value of potable water cannot be over-emphasized as it is cardinal to our well being. Despite this, the hardship our people go through in search of potable water is unbearable. Some travel more than two (2) kilometers just to get water that is mostly good for drinking, especially during dry seasons. Many have also died by drinking contaminated water.
Apparently, the provision of potable water for rural areas and most places in the urban areas where there is none will go a long way to mitigate the consequences that accompany this problem. So, doing this for most of our communities will add colour to the lives of our people and in fact will send a strong message of intent that this foundation desires the best kind of life for everyone. We hope to provide potable water to our people by:
- Drilling of boreholes
- Construction of semi-water systems, and
- Provision of tanks and water reservoirs to designated families and communities with pressing needs
Appeal for Support
Considering the enormity of the problems we are called to solve in our society and the limited resources of the Omo Alausa Foundation, we appeal to the general public, private individuals, multinational companies, corporate organizations, International Organizations and other notable philanthropic bodies to support our lofty vision and contribute towards improving the well-being of our people. Together we can create that ideal society of our dream.
