Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources Weekly Report for February 8, 2019
The Government’s vision to extend safe and portable water supply to all parts of the country is yielding positive results.
The major boost to this programme was the commissioning of one such borehole at Suhum in the Eastern Region to mark the construction of 1,000 boreholes.
The Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources Hon. Cecilia Abena Dapaah jointly commissioned the facility with the Chinese Ambassador to Ghana H. E. Shi Ting Wang. Hon. Cecilia Abena Dapaah commended the Chinese Government for the assistance.
The project is a 20 million Dollar project. The Chinese government is supporting Ghana for the provision of hand fitted boreholes to 500, 000 people in all the regions of Ghana.
She said the government is on course in providing portable and safe water to all the people of Ghana.
The programme forms part of the Economic and Technical cooperation Agreement signed between Ghana and China.
