Tell us what the water concern in your country is!

Nigeria has been facing water problems over the years due to oil spillage into the water bodies making the water unsuitable for consumption. Different parts of the country records up to about 30-50 deaths monthly due to the consumption of this water. Some communities don't even have access to drinking water because of the oil spilllage that affects their water and so they result to taking sachet water which affect their economic status.

This is what I think is one of the solutions for a sustainable future:

Purification of the water is one of the ways to tackle this problem. Creating a system in which residents around the area will be able to afford portable water through the use of natural resources. The Mobile Natrifier we have created will fix this gaps by empowering families to purify their water on their own using the mobile water flask system. (Natrifier)
