Help Bring Clean Water to 5000 people in Twifu

by Twifu Rural Youth And Women Concern

The project communities we serve are crying and looking forward to have access to clean water. We are presently in the dry season and access to water is hard to come by. We have managed to complete almost all the works on the outstanding Wells and we need hand pumps to complete these Wells at New Tufoi and Praso Twansukoda. Ama Boatenmaa (not real name) and her 6 children at New Tufoi are very eager to see the day that water would flow from the Well we are constructing in their community.

We are therefore calling on all of our cherish donors to help us acquire the hand pumps to complete these Wells in the shortest possible time. Your valuable donations are seriously needed this time. We are looking forward.

We want to indicate that more communities are eager to have access to clean water in our targeted project area. So far 15 Hand Dug Wells has been completed with the help of your various donations and the communities’ contributions since the beginning of the project. About 3,750 people are presently benefiting from these Wells. Work on the 2 outstanding Wells under construction is about 60% completed and we need your support and donations to make this possible. We need hand pumps and some materials to do the concrete covers and aprons to enable us complete the Wells.

The 2 project communities to benefit from the completion of these Wells are very anxious to see that water is flowing from the Wells before the next dry season, which starts by end of November every year. We are therefore appealing to all our cherish donors, family and friends to donate once again to help us achieve our aim.

The people of Kyerekum community has been eager and anxious to see that the work we started as far back November 2014 is completed for them to have access to clean water. For this reason, the community supported the activities of the Well construction by contributing enormously by providing some of the needed materials and labour from the onset to see that the work is completed. As at the end of the last quarter, work on the Well was completed including concrete lining and the apron on the Well. We were left with the water pump, which was needed to complete the Well and other ones that are ready and ongoing.

One (1) hand pump was purchased in early June 2016 with proceed from funds raised in the local churches In April and May 2016 specifically to complete the Well. Presently, the entire population of 250 people of Kyerekum community is now accessing water from the new Well. Some Wells are still outstunding and hand pumps are needed to complete them.

We are therefore appealing for our cherish donors to help us to complete the outstanding wells by donating to our project.

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.

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.
