ACCESS TO POTABLE WATER AND SANITATION

Constructed two blocks of toilets and potable water for the Port Harcourt Prisons which houses about 4,000 inmates, and two septic tanks at Degema Prison which houses about 250 prison inmates.The Foundation retains the services of 86 youths to keep Abonnema clean through daily sweeping and cleaning of streets. 36 other youths also ensure the Abonnema cemetery is kept clean and beautified with flowers and plants. This work is line with SDG #6 which is to “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.”

Our Access to Potable Water and Sanitation Programme aim is to ensure that more rural communities have access to clean, safe and quality drinking water. This is a strategy to combat related diseases such as cholera, dysentery, intestinal and other water borne diseases.The programme targets communities that lack ready access to safe drinking water by providing them water treatment packages and bore holes. More than 10,000 households in 32 communities in Rivers State have gained access to potable water through our work.
