Mission Statement

We are committed to Restoring Hope and Transforming Lives. We provide clean, safe, water wells and sanitory toilets in villages and schools.

Description

Bridges of Hope-Africa was founded by ordinary people moved by compassion as they saw the sicknesses, diseases and deaths suffered by the rural village peoples in the eastern region of Nigeria as a result of lack of clean drinking water.

We are drilling water wells for safe, clean drinking water in the rural villages of Eastern Nigeria. These villages trek 5-10 miles each way to fetch drinking water from stream worse than run-off ponds

Many infants and children die each year in these villages from water borne diseases such as Diarrhea, Cholera, Hepatitis A, Polio, etc.

We are supported by ordinary people like you who are also moved by the sufferings of these infants, children and adults who die each year from these preventable water borne diseases.

We believe you too can make a difference. Please join us in the fight against water borne diseases and sicknesses in the rural Villages of Africa. We can do this if all of us come together, put our resources together. Each dollar counts! All your donations go 100% to the project and all your donations are tax deductible.

According to W.H.O reports the infant mortality rate is 98.8% because of lack of sanitation and heath care for pregnant women and children. According to United Nations health research: "In developing countries, 4 out of 5 of all illnesses are caused by water-borne diseases(not HIV/AIDS) with Diarrhea being the leading cause of childhood death". Other water -rated diseases include: Anemia, Cholera, Hepatitis A, Hookworm infection, Malaria, Polio, Ringworm or Tinea, Scabies, Typhpoid, etc. ( Source- 'Global Water Supply and Sanitation Assessment 2000 Report' Section 2.2, W.H.O 2000). You can make a difference for the native people of Iboland(Biafrans).
