AMA Boss commissions three mechanism boreholes

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), Mrs Elizabeth Kwatsoe Tawiah Sackey yesterday commissioned three mechanised boreholes to end the perennial water shortages in some communities at Ga Mashie, a suburb of Accra.
 
The project which was funded by Madam Peggy Adamafio, President and founder of Relief and Aid International, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), also provided street lighting to help the people to feel safe and reduce crime in the communities.
 
Addressing chiefs and people of Ga Mashie at a durbar to commission the projects, Mrs Sackey thanked the NGO and said, the mechanized borehole would help the community take care of their water needs.


 
She said some residents struggle to get potable water in the community and called on benevolent individuals and organisations to partner with the Assembly in addressing critical concerns of the people of Ga Mashie.
 
Mrs Sackey urged residents in the area to maintain and take proper care of the project to ensure its sustainability and assured them of more developmental projects soon.
 
She called for a united front among the residents of Ga Mashie to foster growth and development, while admonishing the youth to desist from activities that would destroy their future, and take their education seriously.
 
Madam Peggy Adamafio, on her part, said the foundation had earmarked two borehole projects for the people of Danchira in the Ga South Municipality of the Greater Accra Region, and as well provided electricity and streets lights to Tupa and other schools in the Region.
 
She said the foundation would pay the cost of power needed to support the pumping of the underground water for 10 years to ensure the continuous flow of water for these communities.
 
Madam Adamafio added that the foundation had provided scholarships to some needy but brilliants student at the tertiary level, stressing that the beneficiaries were selected from communities in Ga Mashie.
