FACE Africa’s mission is to strengthen water, sanitation and hygiene infrastructure and services in rural communities across Africa. Over the last 5 years, FACE Africa has built over 50 safe water and sanitation projects impacting more than 35,000 people in Liberia. With your support this year, we can impact even more lives by reaching more communities with clean and safe drinking water and expanding our work to Nigeria.
Similar to Liberia, Nigeria is facing a critical water crisis. According to WaterAid, shortage of potable water and poor sanitation killed more people in Nigeria last year than Boko Haram. The water deficit isn’t limited to isolated areas, right here in Lagos, about 15 million people have limited access to piped water. To that end, FACE is extending its mission to Nigeria for the very first time.
In order to build awareness and support towards FACE’s very first project in Nigeria, we will be holding a Cocktail Reception on Sunday, February 26 2017 at the Wheatbaker.
