THE AGU NA EBERE CLEAN WATER AND HYGIENE PROJECT
Our story begins in a small community called Agu Na Ebere in Imo State, Nigeria, Africa. Agu Na Ebere is from the Nigerian tribe called the Igbos. This tribe is considered one of the lost tribes of Israel and they are now connecting back to their Jewish root. Click here to learn more.
We’d like to introduce you to Chinuruolum -- she’s two. Chinuruolum is a shy little girl who loves being with her mom and siblings. She hasn’t started school yet, but her parents would like for her to attend soon. By being a sponsor, you can build a better life for this young child and watch her grow into who God has called her to be. Chinuruolum and her family live in complete poverty and lack access to some things you and I take for granted.

Clean Water is one of them. There is no clean water for this small village of people, a village where LLEM does most of its work.
THERE ARE OTHER PROBLEMS IN AGU NA EBERE:
- Typhoid Fever
Agu Na Ebere has been forgotten by local, state and federal government officials. In addition to needing clean drinking water, this community is in dire need of many other things including medical care and access to good schools. Life is hard there, and people do not have access to basic life necessities.
Many people in Agu Na Ebere are forced to drink from percolating waters — water that oozes and seeps. In this rural location, water filters through the soil from beneath the surface without a defined channel and is highly polluted.
We at LLEM International think that the people of Agu Na Ebere deserve better things. Unclean drinking water causes myriad health problems and can even lead to death.
We want to ensure the community doesn’t have to face water-borne illnesses, such as cholera and typhoid fever. We want to ensure a new generation of healthy children and young adults. But having access to clean water costs money, and we need your help!
LLEM International, a non-governmental organization is committed to rescuing the people of Agu Na Ebere by providing clean drinking water. Our work doesn’t end there. We also are committed to providing community members with other things to improve their hard lives, including care packages to meet their hygiene needs.
We are pleased to announce the launching of the new Agu Na Ebere Clean Water and Hygiene Project to help the community of Agu Na Ebere. For only $9.99 you will give clean water and a hygiene package to a child in the Agu Na Ebere community. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to change lives for the 6000 children and adults who reside there.
OUR PLAN FOR REVITALIZING THE AGU NA EBERE COMMUNITY HAS TWO PARTS:
1) We will drill a well in the middle of the community to provide a clean water source. Now kids and adults from the community have to walk miles to get water, and it’s not always safe to drink
2) We will hand out care packages, which will consist of hand sanitizers, soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotions, tissues and washcloths. We will also provide women and girls with access to proper sanitary items.
We want this to be an extraordinary celebration for this community since they have never had clean water!
Matthew 25:35 says, “I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink.”
Let’s make Matthew’s words come to fruition.
