Clean Water and a Wedding

Ahumbe, Nigeria

 

The locals of Ahumbe and Apir are experiencing transformation and enjoying the gains.

This borehole is the cleanest and best source of water for the people in the area. The villagers are enthusiastic and grateful for this development as they look forward to a healthier future.

Students Excited as School Resumes

Ahumbe Village, Nigeria

 

With the ease of the lockdown imposed in several parts of Nigeria, a lot of activities have resumed and a new normal is being embraced. Consequently, the school in Ahumbe Village has resumed and students are back to learn. Our TCD worker took time out to give out facemasks to the students and taught them the proper way to use it. It was an exciting time for all students.

Learning How to Make Locally Sourced Insecticide

Ahumbe, Nigeria

 

A common challenge in most rural communities is finding effective and affordable means of dealing with various kinds of pests that adversely affect the locals. In the month of September, Moses, our TCD worker in Ahumbe, taught locals how to produce insecticide from locally sourced materials which include salt, detergent, and kerosene. Applying this knowledge will help locals save money and overcome some common illnesses.

 

Thank you!

Anyone can be infected with the coronavirus regardless of class, race, or social status, if they do not observe prevention protocols. 

 

In August, the chief of Ahumbe received handwashing stations and face masks in his palace to further engage the community and instill safe hygiene practises among all. About 24 chiefs were in attendance to receive the items with enthusiasm and with a resolve to do more for the health of the community.
