About Unape Alewa Water Challenge

Unape Alewa community Abuja has no access to clean sources of water, people fetch water from a dirty river where cattle also come to drink and defecate, leading to waterborne diseases among the community.

The river that the community fetches water from has exposed the people to water related problems, it has caused severe illness and the deaths of some children in the community. 

The women in the community walk several miles to fetch water from the dirty river for their entire household. This takes up their productive time. They spend more time fetching water than focusing on their work and family.

This has exposed them to water related problems most especially the children of the community



We have no other source of water. This is the water we take, God knows the condition we are that is why he has been protecting us. We pray people with human sympathy will come and dig borehole for us

Access to water is a human right & SDG6
