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.
