March 24, (THEWILL)- United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has said access to clean water for all would foster peace and development in the region ravaged by prolonged armed conflict.

UNICEF Chief of Borno Field Office, Phuong T. Nguyen disclosed this during the 2024 commemoration of the World Water Day with the theme,” Water For Peace” held in Maiduguri on Friday.

UNICEF Chief lamented that access to clean water and sanitation remains a big challenge to millions of children and communities in the northeast region.
“Let us reaffirm our commitment to building a future where every child has access to clean water, every community thrives in harmony, and peace reigns supreme.
“Together, let us unleash the full potential of water as a force for good, driving sustainable development and fostering a culture of peace that will endure for generations to come.”

She lamented that in the northeast access to clean water has been a challenge for many communities, exacerbating their already difficult circumstances due to vandalisation and theft has reduced the capacity to maximise returns of WASH investments.
Phuong said, “Access to safe water is still a mirage for millions of children, households and communities in northeast Nigeria. Access to safe water and sanitation remains a significant challenge.
“There is a need to prevent the vandalisation and theft of Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), infrastructure in camps and communities”, she lamented.
