LG Electronics, a renowned global leader in technology and innovation, has made a generous contribution by providing a solar-powered borehole to the Abule Osun community in Lagos, Nigeria. This marks the second similar project in Nigeria, demonstrating the company’s commitment to addressing the pressing issue of access to clean drinking water in local areas. The solar water pumping system reaches a depth of 120m and has a pumping capacity of around 40m3 per day, equipped with advanced treatment technology to guarantee safe drinking water. Moreover, a 3000-liter tank ensures a continuous 24-hour water supply for the residents of Abule Osun, significantly improving their daily lives.

The solar-powered borehole is a vital initiative aimed at delivering clean and safe drinking water to the community, in line with LG Electronics’ unwavering dedication to environmental sustainability and social responsibility. By harnessing solar energy, this borehole not only ensures access to quality water but also plays a crucial role in mitigating the spread of waterborne diseases, thereby fostering better health and well-being within the community. LG Electronics’ commitment to this project signifies a significant step towards creating a healthier and more sustainable future for all those involved.

“We are proud to contribute to the development of the Abule Osun community,” said Mr. Hyoung Sub Ji, Managing Director of LG Electronics. “Access to clean water is a fundamental human right, and we are committed to doing our part to ensure that communities like Abule Osun have access to this basic necessity.” We have already given a community in Abuja a solar-powered borehole, and here today we are doing likewise. I am assuring Nigerians that before the end of this year, we will give as many as possible to several communities both in Lagos and other states of the federation.

We express our gratitude for the chance, appreciating the backing from our distributor Fouani Nigeria Limited, along with the Youth and Community Leaders, in aiding this community’s welfare. It is our aspiration that this borehole will not only bring happiness but also enhance health and stimulate economic development for future generations, as conveyed by the spokesperson.

According to Mr. Mohammed Fouani (Jnr), Fouani Nigeria Limited Factory Manager, “the donation of the solar-powered borehole is a key component of LG Electronics’ ongoing endeavors to support sustainable development and enhance the well-being of individuals in Nigeria. The company’s admirable commitment to giving back to the communities it serves is evident in this gesture, showcasing LG Electronics’ long-standing dedication to corporate social responsibility. This donation underscores the company’s focus on making a positive impact on both the environment and society, by providing clean, dependable water access through solar-powered technology and thereby enhancing the quality of life for Nigerians.”

“The donation made by the company showcases its enduring commitment to enhancing the communities it serves. This gesture highlights its steadfast dedication to promoting positive change for the environment and society. Through this act of giving back, the company reaffirms its significant impact and influence on the world”. He added.

At the ceremony, Mr. Hyoung Ji Sub, Managing Director of LG Electronics Nigeria, officially commissioned the borehole alongside Mr. Mohammed S. Fouani, Manager of Fouani Factory, Mr. Hari Elluru, Head of Corporate Marketing at LG Electronics, and Prince Kasali Abiodun, Chairman of the Road Transport Employees Association of Nigeria and Youth Leader of Abule Osun. The community leaders, landlords, and association members were delighted by this act, knowing it would greatly enhance residents’ access to clean water.
