Firm Unveils Water, Sanitation Projects In 10 Communities
AS part of its sustainable method of integrating rural sanitation and hygiene promotion with access to safe water, Guinness Nigeria Plc, in partnership with Concern Universal has introduced a programme meant to give clean and safe water to 10 communities across three Local Government Areas of Cross River State.
The Corporate Relations Director, of the firm, Sesan Sobowale, said, “Guinness Nigeria recognises that millions of people still do not have access to clean and safe water. One in five people around the world cannot access safe drinking water; and in Nigeria, 63 million people do not have access to clean water.
This is why Guinness Nigeria and the Diageo Foundation teamed up with Concern Universal to provide clean water for rural communities in Cross River State. Our partnership leverages our collective strengths to help beneficiary communities improve their water, sanitation, and hygiene, and ultimately, their health.”
According to him, the firm is in support of the Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion in Nigeria (RUSHPIN) programme, by providing access to safe water in villages that have achieved open defecation free status in the state.
