Groupe Nduom Foundation, Safe Water Network provide water for Otwereso
The Groupe Nduom (GN) Foundation and Safe Water Network will on Thursday 22nd June, 2017, commission another water project at Otwereso in the Eastern Region.
This is coming on the heels of two water projects that were commissioned at Abeyee and Berase in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abirem (KEEA) District of the Central Region. All the three water stations were constructed at an estimated cost of $300,000, and will provide safe, affordable and reliable water access to over 12,000 people.
According to the President of Groupe Nduom, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, safe water access is directly related to health. “This is why the GN Foundation found it necessary to invest in these projects in order to improve the health of people,” he noted in a statement.
Safe Water Network has launched water stations in 95 communities in six regions, providing water access for nearly 300,000 people in Ghana. The water stations also known as H20ME water enterprises, apply a Limited Mechanization System (LMS) technology with chlorine dosing equipment, and will produce an average of 60,000 litres of water daily. A network of 5 standpipes have been provided in each of the three (3) communities, to ensure convenient water access with plans to introduce a household connection program and mobile enabled water ATMs.

Aside the commissioning of the water project, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom will also use the opportunity to commission the 295th branch of GN Bank branch in Otwereso.
