Blu Impact, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), has distributed 210 water treatment solar sacks to women Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Lagos State.
Mrs Judith Obiajulu-Isaac, Co-founder of Blu Impact, gave out the items in Lagos at an event organised to teach the participants the importance of drinking safe water.
Mrs Obiajulu-Isaac said that her organisation targets vulnerable people in vulnerable organised communities.
She said, “people who probably don’t have access to safe drinking water are susceptible to cholera, diarrhoea and other waterborne diseases.
Mrs Obiajulu-Isaac noted that the organisation provide simple solutions that will help communities provide just basic things to improve their lives.”
She further added that the solar sack was an innovative water purification device that had the potential to make people access clean, potable water.
Also speaking, Mrs Merit Arike-Emmanuel, Head of Programmes, Sesor Empowerment Foundation, said the foundation works with displaced persons to help them thrive by providing psychosocial and economic support.
Blu Impact is implementing the project in partnership with the Sesor Empowerment Foundation to care for women IDPs in Lagos and across the country.
