Ndudara Community is located in Abakaliki Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Before Agency’s intervention, the only accessible route to the community was through a bamboo bridge constructed by members of the community. This bridge, apart from ferrying foot-travelers across to the other side of the road could hardly support any vehicular activity. It was reported that sometime ago, a child was drawn while attempting to cross the stream, when suddenly, the bridge caved in. Apart from this, whenever there is heavy down pour, the bridge would be completely submerged, thereby increasing accessibility risk. To this end, the community unanimously agreed to seek for Agency support.
Today, the Agency supported “Construction of a Double Cell Mini-Bridge” has been completed, commissioned and put to use. With this in place, members of the community can easily travel using different means of transportation. Also, movement of farm produce to the market has greatly improved.
