Ohafia General Hospital, located in Eastern part of Nigeria, needs running water. The hospital was iconic for deliverying children, training doctors and nurses and highly placed in out-patient and in-patient services. That is all history, because there is no running water in the hospital. Poor people, both old and young are needlessly facing ill health and hardship in obtaining healthcare services as there is no running water for the basic health needs.
Funding is generously required to source water through borehole to re-born the services that could be offered by this hospital. At least, we will be sure nurses and doctors wash their hands, patients do not have to look for water to wash their wounds before dressing them, babies and can be born with less infections setting in, etc. Be part of this fundraising and help us save more lives.
Ohafia people can be found all over the world and in every imaginable profession. While many have found success in places far from Ohafia, most retain a bond to their ancestral home. Those who reside in Ohafia are as industrious as their brothers and sisters who have moved away. Ohafia women are hardworking farmers and many of those who work as clerks, teachers, civil servants and in other professions also perform some farm work. This reflects a work ethic that celebrates a fundamental pride in farming. But it also reveals a practical outlook recognizing that farming provides insurance against the instability of the global economy. How can they maintain this work ethic without good health, how can they maintain good health without running water in the hospital?

Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
