Michael Kyeremateng Foundation, a relief and development-oriented None Governmental Organisation, has refurbished two boreholes in Dwandama and Nankese in the Assikuma Odoben Brakwa District in the Central Region.
The refurbishment was part of the Foundation’s core mandate of developing communities, improving the state of the natural environment, improving the welfare of the disadvantaged and help in the attainment of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Quoting from Luna Leopold, Mr. Michael Kyeremateng said “Water is the most critical resource issue of our lifetime and our children’s lifetime. The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land.”
With the new state of the boreholes, the Dwendama and Nankese communities celebrated the dawn of drinking clean water again after a long time of drinking from the river which was detrimental to their health.
This project, according to Michael Kyeremateng, would help in attaining Goals 3 and 6 of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of Good Health and Well-Being and Clean water and Sanitation respectively.
“Let’s all do the little we can to make our world a better place for all,” he appealed.
