In a quest to provide clean and potable water in deprived communities in Ghana, King James Foundation, a humanitarian organisation in Ghana has drilled and commissioned eleven (11) boreholes for eleven (11) communities at Nsuobri Electoral Area in the Ga South Municipal Assembly within Accra the Capital of Ghana.
According to Apostle James Solomon Mensah, who doubles as the Chief Executive Officer of King James Foundation and Head Pastor of King James Ministry International, the initiative aimed at providing clean drinkable water to deprived communities in the country.
So far the foundation has commissioned 25 boreholes in the country.
“I feel excited, I feel so glad that at least we have been able to provide clean water for these communities. We started this project last in 2020 and so far we have commissioned 25 boreholes not much but we thank God. We have a target to drill 50 boreholes within one year for 50 communities”.
Beneficiary communities include Putu Junction, Bisease New Quarters, Nsuobri Ayigbetown, Agbodon, Gasenu Kope, Awulley number 1, Nsobri Number 2 Junction, Toi Kope, Akotiaku Gonnor Man, Akotiaku and Ayikai Doblo.
Highlighting how the beneficiaries were discovered, Apostle James Solomon Mensah said, “every year the foundation embarks on a medical mission in rural areas and through the outreach, we discovered that the source of their water is the cause of numerous diseases the residents battling with; to this effect, we thought it wise to drill boreholes to provide clean water in order to reduce the health challenges they are faced with.
Lamenting that, it is very shameful that part of the capital doesn’t have basic social amenities.
“It so painful and sad to see the kind of water people still drink in some communities located in the capital city of Ghana upon all the money in the capital. We have MPs MMCDAs, etc but yet still nothing is been done about it. We are trying our best as can and we will expand this initiative to the northern sector very soon.
In conclusion, he called on his colleague pastors businessmen to extend their hands to the needy in society.
“I’m, a pastor, I’m calling on all my pastor colleagues, the ministry is not all about the pulpit, is not about bringing a tight, offering, sowing seeds, etc, going on in the ministry; rather let us all reach out to the communities the president can’t do it all that is why he said we should be a citizen, not a spectator. I want to be a citizen of Ghana I want to see Ghana grow and be proud of that. I’m entreating my pastor friends, businessmen, to go out there and bless the communities because people are suffering, people need help”.
Residents from the various communities were very excited and commended the foundation for its kind gesture.
However, this initiative is in a partnership with Ghana West Africa medical mission incorporation, Florida, U.S.A.
