Before now, the people of Wungu for decades have embarked on a daily 3km walk to fetch drinkable water to feed their families.
Speaking during the commissioning, the award-winning actress said, “We hope this will trigger more discussion on how to help more rural communities.
Lack of safe drinking water is one of the world’s leading problems. We want to put an end to clean water scarcity in West Africa”
It is estimated that this borehole will change the lives of over 5,000 people and with continued support of the entertainment industry and Africa World Airlines, Okoro also revealed that this is a first in a series of initiatives targeted at helping women and children in Nigeria and Ghana.
The commissioning ended with a Nursery School visit where she spoke to the youngsters about ‘dreaming big’ and not being defined by their current circumstances.
