Help Bring Clean Water to 5000 people in Twifu

by Twifu Rural Youth And Women Concern
Vetted

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.

We have been working hard to complete additional Wells for the benefit of our people. But lack of funds has hampered our progress over the last quarter. We have managed to complete the concrete lining on three out of the 5 ongoing Wells under construction. The target communities are eager to see these Wells complete especially around this time of the year. Because of the long dry season experienced from November to April every year, many communities in our project area have problems with water accessibility. As a result of this, our people have to resort to polluted water from the streams, which is not safe to their health.


With some of the contributions the communities have made towards the project, they are very anxious to see water flow from the Wells under construction. Mothers, school children and the elderly want to have the water. Some of the school children including Manfred Gyesi and Joana Boateng both in primary class 5 from Twoansuokodu community are always on us to see to the completion of the Well in their community.


We are therefore appealing to you all to donate generously to help us purchase hand pumps to complete the outstanding Hand Dug Wells in the shortest possible time for our people to have access to clean water.

Funds received in the last quarter under review were used to purchase two hand pumps to complete work on two out of the seven new wells under construction. The wells completed include that of the Sacoraa School and another one in Cocoase all in Praso Township. The completion of these two wells came so timely especially for the Sacoraa School, which has reopened for the new Academic year. The school authority and children of the school are so happy for the water facility at their school.

With the out brake of cholera in most communities in Ghana, the school believes the water from the well would go a long way to improve hygiene among the children of the school. The population of the school, which is almost 200 children are presently using the water to wash their hands as well as using it to quench their thirst.

Presently, there are five other Wells almost ready for completion and we need hand pumps to complete them. We are therefore appealing to our cherish donors to donate generously to enable us to complete the wells.
