A message from our dear friend and founder of CleanAcwa, Sangu Delle:
Yesterday was one of the happiest days of my life and a big day for us at CleanAcwa. In a single day, in honor of upcoming World Water Day, we provided water infrastructure to about 3,000 people across 5 communities in Suhum: Akropongfomu, Ahafi, Kpladey, Addo Nkwanta and Koko junction. In Akropongfomu, this was the first water infrastructure the community has ever received since its founding in 1846. Why it has taken 170 years for this to happen is another essay for another day. Today we thank God and our amazing team at cleanacwa and our partners ACDEP and the District Assembly for helping make this happen.
As I pumped water, I was joined by my new friends in the picture Noah Ayittey, Emmanuel Tagoe, Gabriel Nyarko and Addantey Aaron, who were so excited to drink clean safe driving water for the first time! The prior source of drinking water was a spring infested with E.coli. Nana Adom Arthur and I had a great time hanging out with them and learning colorful stories about their lives including one about dodging a snake on the way to school.
