Work for the completion of additional Wells in other communities in our project area has been ongoing since January this year. The 250 population of Kyerekum, which is one of the communities are eager to see the work on the Well in their community completed in the shortest possible time. The concrete lining and apron on the Kyerekum Well has been completed and we need a hand pump to fix for the people to have access to the water facility. Ebo Appiah (not real name) and family who played a great role in building the Well are very anxious to see water flow from the Well. All the children in the community are very happy to see the ongoing work on the Well and are looking forward to the day water would flow for them to try their hands in drawing the water.

We are still calling and appealing to all our cherish donors to help us by donating to our project to enable us to purchase hand pumps to fix and complete the Wells for the target beneficiaries to access the clean water.

Esi Gyenfuaa (not real name) with her five children and other people in Pra-Anaafor in our project community are overjoyed with the completion of the outstanding Well in their community. Water is now flowing from the completed Hand Dug Well, which was made possible with donations received by close of December 2015. The money was used in early January 2016 to procure the hand pump, which was much needed to install on one of the four (4) outstanding Wells under construction. The commissioning of the Hand Dug Well on January 15, 2016 especially around this time of the year has brought a lot of joy to the entire community of 280 people.

We are very thankful to all our cherish donors and we are still appealing to you all once again to help us purchase Hand pumps to completed the remaining three (3) outstanding Wells under construction. Members of the targeted beneficiary communities are anxious and eager to see this happen in the shortest possible time. We are therefore looking forward to receive your donations.

Work has been ongoing to ensure that the new Wells started are completed. In the last three months we have been working hard to achieve this. However lack of funds is making this very impossible. Work on the four (4) ongoing new Wells has far been advanced and almost completed. The concrete lining on all the four Wells has been done and what we need now is the hand pumps, which are urgently needed to complete the Wells for the target people to have access to clean water. People in the four (4) project communities including Esi Gyenfuaa (not real name) with her five children are eager to see the Wells completed.

We are still appealing to our cherish donors, friends and family to help us purchase four (4) Hand Pumps to complete the four outstanding Wells before December 2015 so that the over 1000 targeted people in these communities can have access to clean water before the dry season sets in from December.

Though donations to our project have not been forthcoming, we have not relented in our ongoing project aimed at providing clean water to our targeted people. In the last three months we have been working hard with the cooperation of the project communities to complete the work on the ongoing outstanding Four (4) Wells. All the concrete lining and the aprons on the Wells has been completed and what we need now is the Hand Pumps to help us complete the Wells for the four (4) communities to benefit.

We are therefore still appealing for donations from our cherish donors, friends and family to help us purchase four (4) Hand Pumps to complete the four outstanding Wells, which will benefit about 1000 people with clean water.

Between November to April every year access to potable water is always a problem in our part of the world. Many households have to depend on unwholesome water for domestic purposes. For that matter, the Twansuokodu community was overwhelmed with joy to see the thirteenth well completed in their community. The completion of the Well was made possible with donations received recently and the community support. A hand pump was purchased and installed to complete the Well.
Many of the children including Manfred Gyesi and Joana Boateng( not real name) aged 13 & 15 years old from Twoansuokodu community are so happy because of the completed Well, from which they can easily access clean water that will benefit the entire community of about 250 people for all their chores. With this they will be healthy and prompt at school. We need water pumps to complete the almost completed outstanding Wells in the shortest possible time.
We are therefore still appealing for donations from our cherish donors, friends and family to help us completed the four outstanding Wells.
