Commissioning of borehole at Iri Community
Christian Solidarity Worldwide Nigeria (CSWN), on the 1st of February, 2019 visited Iri community in Kajuru local government area of Kaduna state to commission a borehole built and donated for the Physically Challenged and hospital Christian Ministry and the community.
The physically Challenged and Hospital Christian ministry, formally called the Beggars Ministry was founded in 1979 by late Mr. Galadima and his wife. The couple, together with other volunteers engaged directly with the beggars who come from different parts of the state but were living in colonies within Kaduna metropolis. The physically challenged and hospital Christian ministry relocated the beggars to iri community in Kajuru Local Government Area of kaduna state, after the state government gave an ultimatum for them to leave colony.
Iri community is in the outskirts of Kajuru Local Government area. The community has lots of needs amongst which are;
- Bad road network
- River Blindness
- Lack of good water
- Lack of schools
- Lack of health facilities
- Little or no knowledge of the gospel of Christ
The recipients reached out to CSWN and the organization provided a borehole for the people of that community in a bid to ease the hardship that the locals face in getting good and clean water.
