Dear Family and Friends,
I write to you today with a joyful update on our well and a plea to donate to help complete this critical project. Last years generous donations enabled us to install a solar well, dedicated to the memory of Christine and Andrew McMahon.  I’ve included pictures below of the well and the people that benefit from the clean water, because of YOU (apologies for the quality of the photos, these are the first that I’ve received from the villagers and I was eager to share the progress)! Our well in Umuduofara, Ehime MBANO L.G.A. Imo State has been running since June 1, 2015, a great feat as previous attempts at this site failed. Additionally, the well’s solar panels mean that the well runs on a renewable energy source, and no villager is taxed or required to pay a fee for the water supply.
That being said, we are desperately in need of a final $3,000.00 to complete this solar well so that it is intact for years to come and able to provide clean, healthful water to approximately 600-800 people daily. The remaining work is to ensure the integrity of the project and protect the well – including barbed wire for enhanced security of the solar panels, door and lock system for the powerhouse where the switches and electronic system are housed; to place concrete slab landscaping around the well to avoid any environmental damage (from plants, animals and especially during the rainy season). In addition to galvanize the water tower stands.  Without this well, access to potable water is a daily struggle - trekking in excess of 5 miles to fetch contaminated water for drinking and domestic use. Many times those tasked with fetching the water are the children, exhausting themselves with the trek before school, directly impacting their health and academic performance - I also included a picture below of one of the current unfit water sources, that shows two school girls in their uniforms before school. This trek to unclean water will be completely eliminated once this solar well is complete.  YOUR well will greatly increase the health in these villages eliminating water borne diseases and enabling children to dedicate more time and energy to their schoolwork and their future.
And so, I ask you to please consider donating to Ozioma Hope for Wellness TODAY, so that we can complete this solar well the right way and give the simple and critical gift of clean water to these people. Whether you are yet to donate, or if you already have and can spare a bit more, your support would mean so much – preventing death, a child’s brighter future, a true HOPE FOR WELLNESS.
Please know that I so greatly appreciate all you have sacrificed and all of your support and prayers.  I close with words of gratitude and devotion to completing this project from Bonaventure Ezeji, the engineer and on–the-ground manager, to you, the sponsors of this critical well:
“Successfully completion of this project as proposed is a monumental achievement for all persons involved, especially to the villagers that stand to benefit immensely from every day use of the borehole.  To the sponsors, it is fulfilling acknowledgement to know that one can make difference in another individual’s life regardless of background and the distance that set us apart.  It’s worth mentioning here that too often projects of this type is never completed without stories of mismanagement of funds or bureaucratic delays frustrating the efforts and the spirit of the sponsors, no such thing happened on this project. Again, on behalf of the villagers and me, thank you for all you have been doing for the less privileged people in our community, and please extend our gratitude and appreciation to all the sponsors and donor families as well.”
All our love, which is a portion of God's love,
Ozioma of Igboland  and  Ozioma Hope for Wellness Corp.
