friends of ozzuh

There is nothing more Awesome or more essential to life than fresh, clean, life-giving water! That’s why the “Friends of Ozzuh” are raising funds to construct a borehole water well, a water tower and powered pump system to bring abundant fresh water to the rural village of Ozzuh in Nigeria.

Ozzuh (pronounced OOZOO) is a village in Nigeria, Africa, with a population of about 11,000 people where potable water is in short supply. The “Friends of Ozzuh’s Well” are raising the money to drill a deep (borehole) well that will provide year-round water for the whole village, even when the rains have stopped, the streams have dried to a trickle and the shallow well supplies have evaporated.

Learn more about their efforts and about the village in our story. READ THE WHOLE STORY
