ZAKAT AND SADAQAT FOUNDATION PARTNERS YABA LCDA…….as Hon Jide Jimoh commissions Three Bore Holes for Migbewe Community in Makoko.

Water plays a significant role in the existence of man, hence the popular adage, ‘’Water is Life’’. The Zadat and Sadaqat Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organisation that engages in rendering social, economic and welfare services to the people recently dug three boreholes to the people of Migbewe Community in Makoko. The three borehole projects were financed by the organisation and were strategically located in the community with a 3.5KVA generator to power it.

The chairman, in his address at the commissioning ceremony on Tuesday, 11th September, 2012, appreciated the gesture of the foundation for the laudable project geared towards improving the lives of the people of Migbewe community in Makoko area.

He called on corporate and other non- governmental organisations to follow the footstep of Zakat and Sadaqat Foundation to support the administration in executing projects that would make life meaningful for our people. The chairman then charged the community to make judicious use of the bore holes and not to see it as a profit making venture.

    Infrastructural development should not vest only on the government alone, assistance from individual or non-governmental organization should be encouraged. This is a good developement by ZAKAT AND SADAQAT Foundation. May Almighty GOD continue to strenghten the association and be blessed abundantly…amen

  2. Akeem

    Good development. If an ISLAMIC NGO is doing this, let Christains NGO wake up from their sleep in contributing to the development of the communtiy.

    Spent from what ALLAH has given you. ZAKAT AND SADAQAT foundation has done good by providing portable water supply to the people of makoko, Yaba. Allah will reward all those who have contributed to this laudable programme. Jazzakumlahi khaira.

    Individuals should also contribute to the development of our society. Weldone ZSF for this meaniful gesture.

    @ Akeem, we need not to flex muscles on projects carried out by Islamic NGO. Historically, it obvious that Christains roles in developemnt are loudable in all cities arround Nigeria. Let gives credit to this people (NGO) involved in the developements, as we await more from others. People in Makoko community appreciate your unflinching support towards developemnt. Water is life !!!!!

    This is great achievement, without compromise. Your government indeed reduced the poverty level of the rural area. It cost us an average of N70 to buy water on daily basis. But now, this is free and we can save this money for our good. Thank you Hon. Jide Jimoh for bringing this people to us
