Residents of Bako Village under Gassol Local Government Area of Taraba State, solely depend on an unclean water from a river situated in the village, according to Water The Needy Foundation (WTNF), a charity group known for building wells in deserted communities.
Mustapha Muhammad Baba, the founder of the organisation, in a tweet, pledged to bring respite to Bako villagers.
In the tweet, Baba narrated the plight of the villagers as they suffer lack of adequate and clean water everyday.
The not-for-profit organization has in the recent years built a reputation on social media, especially Twitter, for its community development services including building wells, boreholes and facilitating other sources of water for villages and communities.
In a video embedded to the tweet, women and children were spotted fetching contaminated water from a river.
The river, according to WTNF is their only source of water for daily use and consumption.
Howbeit, WTNF promised to build a well for the community to ease their hardship.
