OUR COMMUNITIES: UROMI & AMICHI, NIGERIA

The communities of Uromi and Amichi are located in Anambra and Edo States, which share an in-land border in Southwestern Nigeria. Both states have a history of infrastructural damage and economic destruction following the end of the Nigerian Civil War in 1970. In the decades since, local governments have struggled to rebuild hospitals, schools, and public housing, but high levels of corruption and financial mismanagement have made re-development extremely difficult.
