Globeserve constructs 60 boreholes for seven districts

Globeserve Ministries International, a Christian NGO, with the assistance of its foreign partners, has constructed 60 boreholes for communities in seven districts in the Volta and Eastern regions.The organization also distributed 2,000 treated mosquito nets and organized medical outreaches in the beneficiary communities, all at a total cost of 500,000 dollars. The districts are Ho Municipal, Adaklu-Anyigbe, North- Tongu, North-Dayi, South-Dayi, and Ketu-South all in the Volta Region and Fanteakwa in the Eastern Region. Reverend Samuel A. K. Dunya, Founder and General Overseer of Globeserve announced this at the commissioning of one of the boreholes at Tsawenu, a farming community with a population of about 1000 people, in the Ho Municipality.He said his Ministry was moved by the way people in such communities travelled long distances, sometimes crossing highways to fetch contaminated water from rivers and streams and decided to support government with the provision of potable water to those areas. "While we moved about preaching the Gospel in communities and villages we were moved by the way our brothers and sisters suffer for water and have to come to their aid because people need to be healthy to listen to the word of God," he added. Reverend Dunya stated that what most communities needed was good drinking water and not medicines and expressed the hope that the boreholes would improve the health condition of people in the beneficiary communities.He said the organization had also trained three people for every community as health aids, each responsible for issues of sanitation, proper use of the mosquito nets and for counselling people showing symptoms of malaria to visit the hospital. "Our target is to minimize malaria cases in the country and we hope to achieve that in not too long a time," Rev. Dunya intimated. He said under a second phase of the project, 60 boreholes as well as other health related packages were being considered for the northern part of the Volta Region and called for support from all stakeholders. A medical team from the Lutheran Church of Hope, USA, earlier screened members of the community for illnesses and gave talks on hygiene and how to prevent common infections.Pastor Juntunen Molly, leader of the team urged the people to visit the hospital anytime they were not sure about their health to be diagnosed and possibly treated to avoid complications of otherwise treatable diseases.
