Arise women lifts Abuja communities with borehole, free medical outreach
Arise Women Initiative, a charity organisation has donated a borehole and a Library to Kpaduma and Dafara communities in Abuja.
Speaking in Abuja at the commissioning the Convener Arise Women Initiative, Pastor Siju Lluyoma.de noted that individuals living in Kpaduma community are suffering from water borne diseases as a result of unclean water and unhealthy environment.
Lluyomade who is also the wife of Pastor in charge of Redeem Christian Church of God (RCCG) said that Arise Women mission is to promote preventive healthcare in every area in an effort to wake up the consciousness of the nation adding that everybody should be able to get healthcare.
She said: “They have water borne disease because there is no water, that is why we have borehole and making sure that the taps are working and running as well as pumping machines and our organisation would ensure that the less privileged are no longer referred to as destitute because they have rights just like every other Nigeria.”
She explained that the essence of establishing a library in Dafara community in Kuji and the renovation of kpaduma public school was to lift up the next generation which she said would in turn bring back development to the community in the nearest future.
The Protocol Officer Kpaduma community council, Bala Iyah in his remarks highlighted Water, Secondary School and medical outreach as major challenges faced by the people of Kpaduma community.
Iyah alleged that children and women have died as a result of unavailability of medical outreach and Auto craft has claimed lives of children attending secondary schools in Abacha Barracks and Asokoro.
“Honestly these are our challenges, we don’t have healthcare centres in this big community, people are dieing because of lack of hospitals in this community. A woman’s womb was condemned because of the distance of hospital.
“We don’t have enough water in this community, we are happy. No secondary school in the community, children die because of accident on their way to school,” he said.
He noted that the community are delighted with the intervention of Arise Women Initiative, saying, “honestly I don’t know we’re to start to appreciate her and her organisations because you can see the borehole that have been rehabilitated, the school that has been renovated and the food items.”
