She however lamented about the rampant practice of open defecation around the home which could cause an outbreak of cholera in the home.
“Currently we do not have fence wall which is disturbing us a lot because residents come in here and defecate morning , afternoon, evening so we are appealing for support to help us build a fence wall.”
Mrs. Ansu indicated that the home plans to build a social center for the children and appealed for support from government, organizations to help them undertake the project.
“We want to build a social center where the children will come together and performance Muslim or Christian prayers and other activities and so we are appealing for support.
