You feel what women and children feel in Africa when they fetch water many times each day with little time for school.

Current focus

Ending the water crisis remains our over-arching goal. Access to sustainable safe water is just the beginning of a truly decent sanitary life. Then comes doing everything to keep them healthy, and furthering their education...

RNM Workshop model building

In 2014, we shall be focusing on 3 new infrastructure projects that will keep our programs sustainable. Getting the North-Central and South-Eastern Worshop Buildings up and commissioned, and erecting our Missions Guest House / Head office space in Nigeria.

RNM Guest House / Office Plan in Gboko

We figured we need 1300 "building blocks" that cost $20 a piece to erect each of the two workshops; and also 1300 "modules" or "building blocks" that I call "actionable FaceBook Likes" that will help us build our ministry Guest House / Office space in Gboko. Each of the ministry Guest House module would cost $25 a piece. What is needed most then is for you to not only donate $20 or $25 towards each of these projects, but to also share the link to this site and our FaceBook post on the "Water Relief Facebook" page to advocate for the completion of this fundraising campaign by Dec. 2013. To donate your $20 or $25 now click here or the donate botton above.

On-going Medical Missions:

The 80-20 Rule seem to be true for water and health. Doctors from our past medical outreaches tell us that approximately 80% of illnesses in Nigeria are caused by unsafe water & unsanitary hygienic habits. Water-borne diseases are probably 20% of all illnesses in the tropics, or what we consider as tropical diseases, e.g. Typhoid, schistosomiasis, filariasis, river blindness, malaria, etc. But often, diarrhea for example, still kill hundreds of children every day in Niger & Nigeria; Worldwide approximately 1.8 million per year. This is preventable.

As such, Relief Network Ministries, Inc. (RNM) is now working in collaboration with other medical professionals to deliver a short-term Medical Mission effort at various locations / communities near our focus cluster areas in the North-Central Nigeria State of Benue, & Nassarawa States; and Abia, Imo, Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, and Anambara States in the South-Eastern part of Nigeria.

Republic du Niger

Tell a story about our new initiatives in Niger... the 2011 Walk for Water Relief jointly organized with Faith For All Nations Church in League City to reach to the people of Niger. More about the people, and challenges.

Niger program is a partnership outreach with Faith for All Nation's Church in League City with a drive for the Great Commission, and the beneficiary ministry - Vie Abundante', a ministry developing indegeneous Church leadership through discipleship programs.

RNM is also on tract to deliver a new rig in the Republic du Niger through a Church and collaborative partnership with Faith for All Nations Church in League City, and Vie Abundante' in Niger. Already geophysical field surveys have been done at 6 proposed new well sites in Niger, and plan is underway to commence drilling there by Q3 of 2012. To become a part of these goals and vision, please make a contribution to help us bring clean water and the Word to the thirsty in Sub-Saharan Africa. Torodi_boys-posses_for_a_shot[1].jpg

Children in particular needs safe drinking water to develop and grow well. They need time to learn and not be laboring for longer hours than they sleep fetching water or firewoods so their moms can cook a meal. Any economic and social development truely begins with access to safe water.

 

 

RNM Core stuff

RNM's business model or cycle revolves around the following pattern, which is essentially what we do in different or similar ways all the time. RNM_Action_Cycle.jpg

  1. Community Mapping / Survey Trips & Engagements
  2. Well Drilling and / or Medical Outreach and / V-TEN (Vocational Technical Education Networks)
  3. Commissioning / Dedication and Christian Witness
  4. Projects & Program Reviews and Evaluations
  5. Reporting and Donor Engagements, and then back again to the field.

 We target communities, schools, Churches, hospitals, or rural clinics with no easy access to safe water, especially for drinking.

Nikoi_boys_fetching_water_from_open_well.jpg

We strive to replace unsafe water sources like the one above in Torodi - where families walk 2 to 3 miles to fetch flood water from shallow and unprotected wells in the valley with good drilled and sealed deep wells. Further we teach and educate them on good hygiene standards: how to keep their water containers clean, basic hand-washing habbits, avoiding deficating in the bush, especially near their homes, boiling any water that they drink that is not from a deep safe well, etc.

Africa has Biggest Problems of all Continents

  • Drought, Hunger, Poverty
  • War, HIV, Plagues, Disease
  • Lack of Portable Water
  • Increasing Islamic & Religious aggressions - Nigeria has had its share

Relief Network Ministries, Inc. (RNM) is now working to get additional 12 new water wells completed in 2012 in Nigeria alone, with 4 old / damaged well rehabilitations already done in Q1 of 2012.  Water is just the beginning of the recovery & relief effort. Sanitation and hygiene must be added along with Christian witness and medical aid.
