Why Orimolade community

Orimolade Community, situated in Ifako Ijaiye Local Government, faces severe challenges in accessing clean water. The community’s hardship in securing water becomes even more critical during the dry season, forcing people to queue for hours or risk crossing busy roads to buy water at overpriced rates from monopolised vendors who charge inflated prices. This adversity adversely affects the health and well-being of residents, especially children, who suffer from skin rashes due to limited water for hygiene purposes. The decision to intervene in Orimolade stems from a commitment to alleviate the water crisis and improve the quality of life for its inhabitants.

The project

The Orimolade Ifako project was a joint initiative that was carried out by the Hope Spring Water Charity and the Mavin records through the sponsorship of Ayra Starr. By drilling a borehole along Awoni Murphy road, it is the project’s intention to overcome the water scarcity problem that Orimolade community is facing. In fact, this water borehole installation is a sustainable and reliable source of clean water that would be provided to residents to meet their daily needs, which included drinking, cooking, bathing and sanitation needs. Moreover, the project sought to benefit not only the immediate residents of Awoni Murphy Street but also neighbouring streets such as Awe Street and Baoku Street, which share similar water scarcity issues.

 

Project Imapct

It is evident that the establishment of the Orimolade Ifako Project will have a very profound influence on the inhabitants. With an estimated population of 600-700 members, including children, the access to clean water could radically change their living conditions.Mr. Joseph Imeh, the  community leader, underscored the urgency of sustainable  water solutions  and expressed gratitude to Hope Spring water charity during the project commissioning. Additionally, testimonies from residents like Mrs. Oluwatoyin,who compassionately offered the site for the borehole, also emphasised the  impact this project will contribute to improve living conditions and alleviate water-related health problems. 

 

 The residents will not go through the arduous task of waiting in long queues and high costs associated with purchasing water from distant sources. Moreover, the availability of clean water will contribute to better hygiene practices, reducing the prevalence of waterborne diseases and skin ailments caused by inadequate water supply. Furthermore,  the effect of the project will be extended to neighbouring streets, benefiting a larger population and fostering community-wide development.
