    Our NGO is a national NGO registered with the CAC in Nigeria. We operate in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria and had notice the possibilities of health threat in some of the poor semi-urban communities popularly known as waterside or waterfront communities in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State. As the names waterside communities implies, they are locally-developed communities by individuals and not government.

    We hope to solicit for health facilities such well built locked-up sanitary facilities with soakaway in one of the communities and to drill a 10″ water borehole facility to supply potable water supply in another. All to mitigate the threat to public health in these communities.

    Will such request be granted and supported.
