The Nigerian people especially women and children are constantly suffering and dying needlessly from various waterborne diseases. Recently, a Cholera outbreak happened in a Secondary School (Queens College, Lagos) in Nigeria killing students, rendered some ill and led to the temporary shut down of the school.
In response to this, they need your help to raise $53,500 CAD to be able to provide 100 Nigerian communities – Villages and Schools with 100 LifeStraw Communities. A GOFUNDME Account has be created to raise required funds. Please click HERE to donate to a good cause…
