Moro: Community, school without water get massive help after Legit tv report | Legit TV
The children exclaim in ecstasy after seeing (potable) water from a tap for the first time in their school. When we heard that a woman came to give us water in this school, We were very, very delighted. Because, we’ve battled the scarcity of water for many years… since some of us were born, water has been our biggest problem in this community We’ve never seen anything like this before. All of us in the community already made efforts to get water… We’ve dug wells, even I have dug two wells already… but it was impossible! Even the government that promised to help us, they dug theirs in between my two wells… and even after doing that, nothing came forth until the end of that administration. they couldn’t still find a way round it. All their efforts proved abortive. It was then very surprising that we heard that a woman came around and visited the school… she saw how much our children were suffering and said that with her visit to the school, they should forget about water scarcity. And true to her words, we saw her impact… she brought water for our kids When I got here today, I saw the water again. I am so happy because it is something we’ve never seen in this town before Thank you, I appreciate all of you who came to the aid of this school May God also help you. May your purse never go dry. I am so delighted… (laughs) Thank you so much, I am very happy. In fact, I am grateful to God. May God continue to crown your efforts I am very happy Every member of the community is also happy. Yesterday, when my children came home to tell me that they fixed their school, and that some places had been plastered, I asked which part and they told me, He explained what had been done and when I came here, I was told that it was one woman that brought all of those items and did everything for the school I became very excited and very happy because it’s not something we’re even planning or looking forward to yet. But with the level of work done so far, they’ve challenged the locals here… to brazen up and take it up from where they stopped This that they have done… in fact… is not something we ever thought would happen at all! We are happy, we are really happy. This face lift will serve as wind breaker for the school… and prevent the breeze from causing harm to them. When the children came home and told us that they brought some items here… to fix this school… we were very happy. More importantly, when we came here to see it for ourselves, we became happier! That’s why we came to appreciate all the good works, and thank them! We are very happy! Because it’s something we’ve never seen before here. We are grateful God will enable them to do even more.
