Though we started the New Year 2022 with much hope, the recent happenings around the world is seriously affecting us economically in our part of the world. In Ghana, there is over 100 % price increase of common items and services as a result of fuel price increases. The effect on our people especially the rural poor is very worrying. Despite these current challenges we still have to work and give hope to our people. Our plans for the year is to make clean water available and accessible to the identified communities in need of it. We therefore want to indicate that, finally work on the new water system at Twifo Musianso number-2 has started. Drilling for the new water system was done in March 2022 with the funds received from last year and early this year. Alice Brentuo (not real name) with her family of 6 children are very happy to see the commencement of work on the new water system. They are now eager to see the completion of the water system in the shortest possible time for them to have access clean water in their community.
Our humble appeal once again to our numerous donors, friends and family is to help us raise the needed funds to procure the polytank, work on the platform to place the water tank and procure the electric water pump to install to make the work complete. Your quick response in donating for this project shall make it possible in early completion of the water system.
We thank you all and still counting on your kindness and generosity.
As we are all aware, we are still battling with the impact of the Covid 19 and the accompanying challenges. Though we cannot blame everything on the Covid 19, our efforts on fund raising has seriously been challenged resulting in lack of funds for our projects development. In all this we have not relent in our development work to make live better for people in our project communities. Funds and resources secured over the last two quarters has been put together to start a new water system in Twifo Musianso number-2. However the funds available is not enough to start with drilling of the borehole and complete. We are leaving no stone unturned to get the necessary resources and funds for work to commence on the new water system in this first quarter of 2022. Alice Brentuo (not real name) with her family of 6 children and other community members still want to see the drilling of the borehole and completion of the new water system. They no more want to drink and use the unwholesome water, they have to walk long distances to get especially during this time of the year. Therefore our humble appeal once again to our numerous donors, friends and family is to help us raise the needed funds for the work to take off on the new water system. We are still counting on your kindness and generosity. Donate Now and Happy New Year to you all.
We are still working hard to mitigate the negative impact Covid 19 has brought to people in our project communities. The government and the health institutions in Ghana are also working to get vaccines to vaccinate our people and to ensure that the Covid 19 is brought under control. With the little resources available to us as an organization, our health committee members are working with the project communities to ensure that our people adhered to the covid 19 protocols. Through this efforts, some primary schools in our project communities have been provided with hand washing buckets and quantities of soap and sanitizers. Plans are presently far advance to start a new water system at Twifo Musianso number-2. Very soon the contractor shall start with the drilling of the borehole, whiles we continue to raise funds for its completion. Community members of Musianso number-2. Including Alice Brentuo (not real name) with her family of 6 children are anxious to see the start and completion of the new water system.
We are therefore making another humble appeal to all our donors to donate generously to support the construction of the new water system.
We are still working hard to make a positive impact in our project communities. But lack of funds is not helping our situation. With the COVID still around, a lot more has to be done to keep the lives of our people safe. Therefore donations recently received has been used to support our communities with the essential items needed to observe Covid protocols. We provided Veronica Buckets for hand washing, soap, sanitizers and a poly tank for a community school to store water. These little efforts are making great impact in the lives of our people and we need your donations to sustained it. Our people that needs the water systems in their communities are eager to see it done and therefore your donations are needed to make it possible. Communities already provided with the water facilities some as far back 2014 are happy and thankful to our donors. Mary Kumi (not real name) a mother of four children is always singing praises for the water, which is accessible to her all the time.
Your donations are therefore needed to put a smile in many of our women and children like Mary.

Lack of funds has been a great challenge to our organization throughout the past year 2020 with the covid - 19. Many communities in our project area still do not have access to clean water and this is making life very difficult for our people. Little resources we had last year was used to encourage our people to wash hands and observe all the covid – 19 protocols. We also supported some of the communities with supply of clean water with the help of some government institutions in our project area. We have just entered the drying season in Ghana till end of April 2021 and the problems of these communities shall worsen. Many school children in the identified communities including 9 and 12 years old James Minta and Olivier Gyesi (not real names) are seriously worried about their plight now that they are going back to school after staying at home for nine months because of covid – 19.
All schools in Ghana are reopening for continuation of academic work and both parents and children are skeptical about what would happen with the covid – 19 still around. Though the government has promised to provide some of the needed tools and items needed for the observation of Covid – 19 protocols, communities without clean water accessibility is still a problem. We shall therefore once again appeal to our cherish donors to make donations to our project to enable us provide new water system for the identified communities in need.
