The Foundation Aids In Providing Water Access To A Community In Abuja

The Coca-Cola Foundation has provided funding for the Global Foundation for Hope Care and Development’s Project Kunyami in Abuja.
The project supported the water needs of 2,000 residents by installing two solar-powered boreholes in the community over a span of eight weeks.
The support serves as a part of efforts to cushion the water scarcity challenge in the community which will supply 20,000 litres of clean, drinkable water each day.
Reflecting on the project, Saadia Madsbjerg, President, the Coca-Cola Foundation, stressed the foundation’s dedication to providing sustainable, clean water access that enhances both the livelihood and well-being of communities while safeguarding them against water-related disasters.
“Water issues are a global challenge, but they are unique to the individual communities. That is why addressing these water challenges with local partners and perspectives is so important. We are grateful to have funded this water project supporting the 2,000 residents of Kunyami, and we look forward to replicating the success of Kunyami in other water-stressed communities all over the world,” Madsbjerg explained.
The project further seeks to ensure that underserved residents have access to vital resources such as food, potable water, healthcare, education, and social activities.
The Coca-Cola Foundation supports transformative ideas and institutions that address complex global challenges as it focuses on sustainable access to safe water, climate resilience and disaster risk preparedness and response, circular economy, and economic empowerment.
Since its inception in 1984, the foundation has awarded grants of over $1.5 billion in service of its mandate to strengthen communities across the world.
