A Non-Governmental Organisation, Frontiers Mission Network in collaboration with Zion Community Church International, has donated two boreholes to Gbaalteng and Tuna Senior High Technical School, in the Sawla- Tuna-Kalba District of the Savannah Region.
The facilities would supply potable water to about 2000 inhabitants in the two areas.
Rev Dr. Apostle Konjon Moses Sansah, Executive Director of the NGO, during a short ceremony to commission the facilities, said the boreholes were provided with the help of his church, thus, Zion Community Church International.
He said the NGO aimed to provide potable drinking water to deprived areas, quality healthcare and quality education, among others.
The founder and overseer of the church Rev. Apostle Dr. Moses Sansah Konjon, said the church is interested in developing both the social and spiritual welfare of its members as well as their immediate community.
With funding from Frontier Missions Network Rev. Sansah, explained that the boreholes would ensure that residents were not stranded in search of potable water.
Inaugurating the facility, the founder and overseer of the church, Apostle Sansah said “the gospel is not only about the spiritual welfare, it also concerns itself with the physical dimension of its adherents, to meet their most felt social needs”.
Apostle Sansah, intimated that partnering government to provide the needs of the people was another way of preaching the gospel and showing people how to be benevolent and merciful towards the needs of others.
Apostle Sansah, in a speech, appealed to the community members to make the education of their children their ultimate goal “so they can become great leaders in future and by so doing, poverty would be eradicated”.
Apostle Sansah, who is spearheading the projects in the Savannah and Upper West regions , with support from his Church as the founder and general oversear, urged residents to take proper care of the facilities for their benefit.
Beneficiaries of the projects said the facilities were timely and great relief and joy to them because of the difficulties they go through in getting water, especially during the dry season.
The facilities bring to 54, the total boreholes drilled by Apostle Sansah in the Savannah and Upper West regions.
Due to his philanthropic works in the Savannah Region, he was recently given the title” Nchuwura”, by Yagbonwura, the Overlord of the Gonja Traditional Kingdom.
