An NGO, ‘Bryan Acheampong Foundation’, has launched a project to construct mechanized boreholes and fix broken water systems in selected communities across the Kwahu East District.

Mr. Eric Nyarko, its Director, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that about 100 communities would benefit.

They include Orobon, Nteso, Atta-Ne-Atta, Beboa, Abisu Number One, Ankoma, Attarekan, Twewaa, Oframase and Abisu Number Two.

He said their goal was to assist provide the people with access to safe drinking water.

The situation where some communities in the area had over the years been struggling with perennial water problems should not continue.

Mr. Nyarko said the Foundation had already supplied 10 poly-tanks to two communities as a temporary measure to deal with the water crisis they were facing.

He spoke of a free training programme to aid the communities to properly maintain the boreholes.

Besides, it had been carrying out hygiene education in basic schools and the focus had been on hand washing.
