The African Assistance Plan (AAP), a Christian Non-governmental organisation has launched a Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) project, to complement government’s efforts towards proper waste and sanitation management in the Bono Region.
According to Mrs Rose Meda Donkor Offei-Asare, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the AAP, the project would bring together churches and collaborate with key stakeholders to improve sanitation in the region and beyond.
Prophet David Donkor, the Founder of the AAP officially handed over the NGO to Mrs Offei-Asare at a thanksgiving ceremony held in Sunyani.
“The project seeks to use the pulpit for intensified public education on proper waste management and sanitation”, Mrs Offei-Asare stated.
She explained as key partners of development, there was the need for churches and religious bodies to contribute and support the government to build the nation.
Aside the spiritual development of people, she said God had placed enormous tasks and responsibilities on churches to ensure that people lived in a good environment, saying cleanliness was next to Godliness.
“We will stage series of crusade and use the pulpit propagated issues on sanitation and also organise regular clean up exercises to make Sunyani clean”, Mrs Offei-Asare stated.
She, therefore, called on District and Municipal Assemblies, churches, traditional authorities, and corporate bodies to support the campaign to achieve desirable outcomes.
Mrs Offei-Asare expressed discomfort about the poor sanitation situation in the Sunyani Municipality, saying the AAP, and advised residents against indiscriminate dumping of refuse and plastic waste to avoid the outbreak of communicable diseases.
