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.
The fight to protect our people from the Covid–19 has been very challenging in the last four months. This is because many of our project communities do not have access to clean water supply. On the onset of the Covid-19 in Ghana, the Government of Ghana made water supply to the people for free till date. However the communities without water systems and supply has to rely on water supplied by benevolent institutions and some NGOs. Our organization has worked with this institutions in the last four months to ensure that our people get access to clean water supply. Funds received recently has been used to provide polytanks to the communities for water storage and supply. The households in the communities has been encouraged to wash hands with soap and used alcohol sanitizers as well as wearing of nose masks, some which we provided to the people. The result of this little efforts has help to keep our people save from the Covid-19. We need your donations to sustain this efforts. We are therefore appealing to our cherish donors to help us installed permanent water systems in the identified project communities.

We are really not in normal times at all, with the upsurge of the corvid-19 in almost every part of the world. The situation in my project community in Ghana is not different. Our ways of doing things has changed to ensure that we are protected from contracting the virus. In all this, water usage for washing hands at each given time has become very relevant in every community. By this the government of Ghana has to absorb the bills of water usage for three months in all communities with access to national and community water supply. Many communities in my project area still do not have access to this facilities of water supply. To remedy the situation, our organization Twifu Rural Youth And Women Concern has been working with opinion and community leaders to get water to some of these communities. Two poly tanks has been made available to some of these communities with donations received recently to help the people receive free tanker water supply from some of the state institutions like the Ghana National Fire Service. Our project team are in the communities to encourage the people to adhere to protocols of hand washing with soap and the use of sanitizers. Many children like Kojo Asiamah (not real name) have developed simple hand washing tools made from used gallons in the absence of tabs with running water and this tools are working perfectly and serving the purpose.
In all this, the need of water supply to the communities without water has become key to the survival of our people since we don’t know how soon the corvid-19 would go. We are therefore appealing to our cherish donors to help us install the water systems in the new project communities. We are seriously counting on your usual support.
In Ghana presently, we are in the dry season period and this time round, access to clean water becomes a major problem in most rural communities. In my project community where we have been able to installed the water systems through this project, the people including 12 years David Boateng (not real name) with his other colleagues school children are very happy this time. Because there is water flowing from the water system we provided in their community. They no more walk long distance to look for unwholesome water before they go to school. They now have access to clean water for drinking bathing, washing and cooking. However, that is not the same case with communities without water systems in our project area. So far seven communities have been identified to be experiencing serious water problem. Some of the community leaders and members of these communities are always on us calling for help to come to their aid.
We are therefore appealing once again to our cherish donors to donate to our project. Tell your friends and family to tell a friend to donate to our water project. Our plans in 2020 is to ensure that these seven communities are provided with the water system to ameliorate the present situation in the identified communities. We need the support of all to make this possible.
