How 21-Year-old Corp Member Built Boreholes To Abandoned Community That Lack Access To Clean Water

A 21-Year-Old corp member identified as Osaretin Michael who was posted to a less privileged community in Ondo, where their major problem is lack of access to clean water has now helped them build Boreholes in the community.

Despite the community having democratically elected representatives, their situations remain unchanged until the aforementioned kindhearted corps member was posted to the community.

The young man told reporters that the villages of Ajipowo, Oyebode, Orisaye and Olugere villages in Oda community consume muddy water that is hazardous to their health.

In his words: “Apart from the muddy pool, their closest source of clean water is a place called Cocoa Board which is 5 kilometres away from the villages and attracts a fee of N500 per trip and those who can’t afford the fee will have no other choice than to drink the muddy water which has brought diseases like malaria, typhoid fever, amongst others,”

Michael already had it figured out ( his plan was to give a borehole to two villages) but needed the financial muscle to actualize it and immediately set to work with aggressive social media campaigns and appeals. 6 months after, it became a reality.

Michael took to LinkedIn to showcase the new boreholes which the community can now use to have access to clean water without going that far distance.
