National President NOWA, Hajiya Nana Aisha Gambo, and the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development Hajiya Sadiya Umar-Farouq.

Naval Officers’ Wives Association (NOWA) has donated portable water through their pet project ‘Clean Water’ to 50 communities across the nation.

National President of NOWA and wife to the Chief of Naval Staff Hajiya Nana Aisha Gambo who made this known at a courtesy visit to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar-Farouk in Abuja said the association was involved in charitable projects, skills acquisition and socio-economic empowerment activities, especially to indigent women and children.

“This project was born at the realisation that so many communities in Nigeria lack access to drinkable water. It is more distressing that some of these communities have been sharing the only available source of water with domestic animals in their midst”, NOWA president said.

The Humanitarian Minister lauded NOWA for positively touching lives urging the association to take advantage of the social welfare initiatives of the federal government to address poverty and boost economic development for women, youths and children.

NOWA says the ‘Clean Water’ project has provided boreholes in 50 communities across; the FCT, Nassarawa, Kano, Rivers, Plateau, Ekiti, Oyo, Abia, Edo, Cross River, Yobe and Gombe states.
