Water Filter Outreach Work Ghana

The Salomey Volunteers Group (SVG), a non- governmental organization, has donated over 4,000 water filters to deprived communities in the Kwahu area.

The beneficiary communities include Orobon, Oboyan 1 and 2, Attaaso, Dwerebease, Hyewohoden, Attakora among others.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at Mpraeso, Mr Frederick Frimpong, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the NGO, said his outfit decided to donate the water filters to the communities because they lacked portable water.

He said the aim was also to prevent the outbreak of diseases due to the contamination of water resources in the area by the activities of cattle herders.

Mr Frimpong said the terrain of Kwahu makes it difficult for inhabitants to have portable water and so the NGO has provided 300 mechanized boreholes in some communities in Kwahu where underground water was available.

The NGO, he said, has provided toilet facilities in schools and communities to help improve sanitation practices in the area.

Mr Frimpong said his NGO has been organizing free surgeries for the vulnerable in society through its social intervention programmes to give the people access to quality health care delivery.

He said the NGO has also rebuilt and renovated schools for the Attaaso D/A Basic school and Kwahu Nsabah D/A Basic school.

Mr Frimpong said there are plans to increase the number of students who qualify for the organization’s scholarships in the various Kwahu districts.

The NGO, he said, embarks on outreach programmes once every week to donate items to people living in hard to reach areas.

He said various items including bags of rice, soaps, bags of gari, gallon of cooking oil and clothing, are donated to the people.

Salomey Volunteers Group (SVG) was established over 30 years ago to see to the welfare of the vulnerable in hard to reach communities of the society.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
