Water Walk in Nashua raises awareness for Nigerian communities with little water

NH1.com

NASHUA — The Thank You Project is hosting their annual Water Walk on Saturday at Greeley Park in Nashua in order to raise awareness and bring clean and reliable water to two communities in Nigeria.

The members of Ututu and Achi, rural communities in Nigeria, walk over two miles every day just in order to get water. The water is not sanitary, and as a result, there are high risks of illness and death due to water-borne bacteria and viruses, according their website.

The walk will be on Saturday and will help people experience the trek that these communities go through each just to get water.

"The Water Walk is our attempt to raise awareness about these squalid conditions and bring attention to the urgency of this situation," they explain. "The truth is, countless lives could be saved, and the quality of life improved significantly, just by having easy access to clean water."
