I feel very happy and full of gratitude writing this, few weeks ago I posted about cleaning up the community I grew up I actually thought it was going to be a not so difficult task which could be carried out with 200sbd or less I was totally wrong. I started with preventing further cases of malaria from occuring by providing mosquito nets and collaborating with a closeby pharmacy in distribution of drugs and mosquito nets which we have been able to donate twice now. Also gave an example to the people on how to install the mosquito nets using one of their rooms as an example
I decided to start the full clean up by starting with four paid labourer assisted by myself and few friends. 3_ACBB8_E4_9_B48_4767_925_D_C281_C5_CEE4_A6

We couldn’t do much on the second day due to the rain and it gave us a setback.

In other to avoid water storing up on the road we had to fill up so many spots with sand from digging and we had to buy broken blocks at a cheaper price from a nearby factory ,gravel cause a portion of the road was sinking really bad

Digging of the ditches was so stressful , we made a proper drainage system to avoid flooding in the case of heavy rain

The whole process took a whole four days including (from morning till evening)
3_C608_D4_F_2_C51_450_A_8105_9_D048_A753_F5_C we had to create fresh ditches and re-dig and cleanup the existing ones.
The whole experience was tougher than I thought it would be, from running out of funds, having to walk distances to get refreshments,the screen of my phone breaking in the process .E55_A92_D8_3_F86_4840_A596_ECB8_AC6_C8_FDD

At a point I was really frustrated and tired ABD4_C534_5_E89_4_D0_A_908_D_5057_A9604_AAA

The thought of avoiding another case of losing a child to malaria gave me the motivation I needed.The whole clean up opened my eyes to so many societal problems we overlook. A man approached me and offered to help pack the dirt for any amount so he could feed himself, this brought tears to my eyes before I could say jack he already took the wheelbarrow 542_A573_D_013_E_4_F5_E_B2_BA_EC8_C5_BF37078. After the whole proces we fumigated the whole area. The proceeds from this post will be used to provide more drugs for the clinic and mosquito nets. I would love to challenge us to do our part in our community waiting for the government won’t help or provide any situation (we know that might take forever to happen). The summary of the whole process can be seen in the video below

This whole project was supported by @sircork of @youarehope foundation with 250steem ( I really can’t thank you enough for your monetary and moral support, God bless you real good) . A big thank you to my My friend @tyrex who introduced me to steemit (he made sure he called everyday to check on the progress of the cleanup) . My sis @ifeoluwa88 provided us lunch for two days ( you know I owe you forever). A big thank you to my friend @hardebayo who just joined steemit as a result of this project ( he took all the pictures and videos with his phone and assisted all through)7_D97_E648_AB1_B_4_B00_BE21_8_BEF3242_E17_C A big thank you to @c0ff33a for always encouraging and the entire steemit community.
