The last 12 days has been great. We( John Dumelo Foundation) distributed over 2400 loaves of bread, close to 1100 bags of rice, bags of water, cooking oil and gari to the less privileged in the Ayawaso West constituency. This is our little way of putting food on their table during the lockdown period. God bless us all. #thistooshallpass

To ease the burden of those who did not have access to potable water to their homes, John Dumelo helped construct water access points across the constituency.
