A None Governmental Organization based in Accra, HEAN1 Foundation has provided clean drinking water to the residents of Gyankobo in the Central Region of Ghana.
Gyankobo, a community in the Twifo Heman Lower Denkyira District was selected for the Foundation’s second project in line with their goal in ensuring potable clean water for deprived communities.
Before HEAN1 Foundation’s intervention, the community which has a population of about 6000 residents were relying on a stream as the only source of water because the borehole they had got spoilt over 10years now.
The HEAN1 Team gathered that the stream was a bit far from the town and residents have to walk many miles to fetch watch. Also, it poses a lot of health risks as the cook and drink from the untreated water from the stream.
After a meeting with the elders of the community, the founder of HEAN1 Foundation, Mr Henry Assumeng together with his team laid out their plan to provide them with a mechanized borehole at no cost at all to the community and its inhabitants, a development which came as a relief to the elders.
The HEAN1 Foundation fulfilled its promise to the community by handing over the completed mechanized borehole to the community of Gyankobo at a grand durbar with members of the community in attendance on February 8, 2020.
Mr Assumeng thanked the people for the warm welcome given to him and his team during their first visit which led to the establishment of the borehole.
He also outlined other initiatives that the Foundation had in its plan, and how he is working hard to help the United Nations achieve it’s SDG Goals 5 and 6.
