The community lacks basic social amenities such as good drinking water, toilet facilities (places of convenient), health facilities, good basic schools etc. Unavailability of pipe borne water in this community makes sanitation in the community very poor. Recently, as a monthly health program, I organized a health outreach Programs in this deprived community called Nsakina, at the open forum, the members in the community appeal that they need a mechanized borehole with poly-tank in the community so as the community members can fetches water for use and pay a small fee so as to be able to service the debts of the borehole, for water is life
