Manama, May 15 (BNA): Around 62,000 people from nine villages in Ghana have access to clean and safe water thanks to a project launched in Bahrain.
“Project Nsuo” is spearheaded by Rotaract Bahrain in cooperation with Rotary International, Rotary Clubs of Manama, Salmaniya, Adliya, Seef with Antonette Avila of Good Cause.
A group of philanthropists went from Bahrain to supervise the installation and implementation of the water project in the country.
The group oversaw the building of a water pump, well and irrigation channels in the villages.
Rotaract Bahrain President Tanima Chakravorty led the inauguration of the water projects along with the other members of the group and the people of the villages.
Chief of the village of Daboase Nana Odikro expressed the gratitude of his people to Rotaract Bahrain for providing his community with the much-needed water system.
“A big thanks to you for helping us because the water we get here is very bad. People drink, animals go there to drink too. Sometimes, we can’t control it,” he said.
Nana Vao, a teacher in Daboase, also extended his appreciation to the Rotaract Bahrain group for “bringing water” to their village.
“We don’t have any water around. We go to the stream to fetch water and it is very hard. But today, we have water, thank you,” he said.
While working on Project Nsuo, the Rotaract Bahrain group also visited schools and spent time teaching the local children and distributing school supplies as well as lunch boxes.
