Most Inspiring Story – He Drilled So They Can Live – A MUST WATCH
Interestingly his own birth village Nahuce in Kano lacks clean water, so we decided to head there for the project. A lot of us are very fortunate to be brought up in a very good environment, where
clean water is so plentiful and readily available that we rarely, if ever, pause to consider what life would be like without it.
Not only is there poor access to readily accessible drinking water, even when water is available in these small villages, it isn’t clean. We all have our own problems and struggles in life. But when we find out the troubles and hardship the poor people in neighboring villages within the city we live faces every single day to get access to clean water, we suddenly realize how trivial and insignificant our problems are compared to theirs.
“But the reality is that most of us are living in a protected bubble, one that is built by society’s natural class system and social dynamics. For instance, if you are a working professional today who comes from a normal middle class family, working in the city, the chances of you coming across the poorest of the poor to experience and understand the perils they go through is quite slim”
For those that have extended relatives in the village rarely visit. our lives probably revolve around our comfortable home, offices, malls, restaurants and the occasional vacations.
