Joyful news in the middle of covid-19 crisis – water borehole sponsored by “Well4Africa” social initiative was blessed and inaugurated on 9th of May in Sibi community, Ghana. A small group of community’s representatives took part in the celebration due to safety reasons.
Sibi is a small village community in the Nkwanta District in the eastern part of Ghana. The village has 320 households/extended families, who are beneficiaries of this water project. Most of local people are farmers. Village had only one well before. During the rainy season, people collected rainwater coming down from their roofs. At other times women and children were forced to fetch water from a small man-made dam or other sites, where water is stagnant, muddy and not safe to drink.
The well is drilled on a donated site, which is conveniently accessible to the local community. Its care and maintenance is entrusted to the Capuchin Friars of Sibi and the local group of Franciscan Youth who initiated this water project. The amount donated to the project – 3804 Euros. The works have been implemented by “Global Tech Boreholes Limited” 03 March – 01 May 2020.
God bless all donors of the social initiative "Well4Africa"!
