J and J Foundation has donated a borehole to Yahe Community in Yala Local Government Area of Cross River State.

J and J Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization helping the less privileged in diverse areas of life cutting across education, agriculture, vocational skills acquisition and welfare.

Speaking while handing over the project to the Community, the Director, J and J Foundation, Mr. Julius Agrinya (JRN), explained that one of the cardinal points of the foundation is to aid humans so as to leave a life worthy of emulation as well as to keep the foundation memories alive.

Mr. Agrinya disclosed that the foundation since its inception has made critical intervention in various communities in areas of social amenities, welfare, agriculture, education and skills acquisition.

According to him, his community has been fetching water from unclean and unhygienic sources for consumption, “so the foundation thought it wise to assist with a borehole, more things are coming,” he said.

On her part, Mrs. Josephine Agrinya, Co-Founder of the foundation said about sixty-three million Nigerians lack access to water and over one hundred children under the age of five die yearly from diarrhoea and related water borne diseases according to World Health Organization, WHO.

She added that communities that lack access to safe and clean water witness the highest incident of death, so their foundation aims at ameliorating these pains.

Responding to the kind gesture, the Clan Head of Yahe community, Chief Ogamoda said it has brought timely succor to his people considering the hardship the people go through in a bid to get portable water.

He added that the scarcity of water in his community has been a nagging issue and health concern expressing the belief that the donation by the NGO will put an end to such challenges.
