Twenty (20) communities within the Obuasi Municipal, Obuasi East and Adansi Akrofuom Districts are to benefit from 60 household microflush toilets and 19 boreholes from the Rotary Club of Obuasi.
Officials say the Obuasi club has partnered with Rotary Club of Montreal in Canada and some major donors from USA to support needy communities in Africa.
President-elect of Rotary Club of Obuasi, Sarwan Kumar, reveals plans to build Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit in Obuasi to deal with Neo-natal deaths in the next Rotary year. He bemoaned the surge in Neo-natal deaths which he said calls for all hands on deck to stem the tide.
Rotarian Kumar said, “the rotarians in Obuasi are committed to help the less privileged in the society, the reason for provision of the boreholes and toilet facilities to the communities.”
He said this at a short ceremony held at Adukroba in the Adansi Akrofuom District to officially cut sod for the commencement of the projects.
District Chief Executive for Akrofuom, Jonas Maurice Woode, praised the Rotary Club for partnering Government in provision of basic amenities to the people. He said the projects will go a long way to improve the living conditions of the beneficiary communities.
He therefore appealed to the communities to help maintain the facilities once they are completed to enable them serve future generations.
Antwi Boasiako who represented the Odikro of Adukroba, on behalf of the beneficiary communities pledged to maintain the facilities and manage it well for the benefit of the people.
