The Redeemed Christian Church of God Kaduna Province 3, has donated three boreholes to Goron Dutse and Rigada communities in Lere Local Government Area of Kaduna State, to ease water shortage in the area.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that two of the boreholes were drilled in Goron Dutse and one in Rigada.
General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said in a message to the inauguration of the boreholes on Thursday, that it was part of church’s commitment in providing laudable projects aimed at uplifting the living standards of the people.
Mr Adeboye who was represented by Assistant Pastor in charge of Kaduna region, Pastor Asegbare Brown, explained that the project was also in line with the church’s corporate social responsibility.
He maintained that the church has made it a point of duty to impact positively on host communities by sinking boreholes, donation of hospital equipment and assisting the less privileged.
He also stressed that the gesture was part of its contributions toward complimenting the efforts of government in providing basic social amenities to the people.
Mr Adeboye assured that the church would not relent in putting smiles on the faces of people.
Earlier the pastor in charge of the province, Oyekanmi Kadiri, said water is life, a basic necessity required by the community to safeguard their health.
Mr Kadiri said the church was also engaged in training youths in skills acquisition to enable them earn decent living.
He called on private organizations and wealthy individuals to also contribute in uplifting the lives of people.
In a remark, two community leaders, Aminu Saidu, Emmanuel Aket, expressed gratitude to the church for the gesture and appealed to other organisations to emulate the initiative.
Also, a Special Adviser to Lere Local Government Chairman, Grace Gandu, expressed appreciation to the church for the intervention.
According to her, if more organisations assist communities in this way, the government will not be over burdened.
Mrs Gundu said the local government operates an open door policy and will always partner with any stakeholder that will bring succour to communities in the area.
