A philanthropic organisation, the Sarkin Fulani Foundation, plans to build 50 boreholes in Gombe state at a cost of N40 million.
The chairman of the foundation, Adamu Mohammed, told PREMIUM TIMES in Gombe on Tuesday that the boreholes would be distributed across the state to assist government in improving water supply to the people.
Mr. Mohammed said the foundation had also donated 30 hospital beds, an electricity generator and drugs worth N400,000 to the snake bite treatment centre in Kaltungo town of the state.
The organisation had also assisted over 2000 pregnant women across the state in prenatal care, he added.
“Our aim is to help in alleviating the suffering of the masses,” Mr. Mohammed said, as he called on the well to do in the state to emulate the gesture of the foundation.
